Why ‘In Summary…’?

I’m an organizer, a planner, a whittle-through-the-muck-to-find-the-bottom-line kind of person. In essence, I’m a summarizer. Most of my conversations end with, “OK, in summary…” with the main outcomes highlighted and the action points delegated.

Written August 20, 2013 A month and a half ago my laptop was run over by our minivan. It was a short series of missteps leading to a crunch that rendered me instantly untethered to the world of internet connections.
