I have lost track of exactly where I found it on Twitter, but someone said yesterday that they were listening to NPR for the first time in four years, having made a deliberate decision in 2016 that they wanted control over when they heard Trump’s voice.

Hearing that, I realized that I had done the same thing without realizing it.

I turned on NPR this morning, and it was kind of delightful.

The days, weeks, months, and years ahead hold a great many challenges, to me sure—some of them really huge and daunting. Still, it is kind of an amazing feeling to know that a whole bunch of stuff that hasn’t felt possible for years is maybe possible again.
