Time -- There Never Seems to Be Enough of it!

I'll keep this blog live, but I'll be on vacation from posting for now.

I'm still tweeting at @Celebrate_Maui, though, so be sure to join me there!

Also, I have a professional account at mauilibrarian2 in Olinda, where I'm blogging regularly. So that's where you can find me. (And on Twitter at mauilibrarian2.)

Take good care,

Linda Lindsay
