Hello 2018.

Edna Mode's words are guiding me in 2018.   (I wrote a post for Letters to a Young Librarian you might like to read. Tell me what you think. I'll be over here working on my superhero costume. No capes!)      

There’s no denying it

... I love podcasts.  There are so many podcast episodes on my phone that I either need an extra two hours in the day, or to get up earlier for more listening time.
