[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Sometimes, when I post a video or article, a commentator appoints themself to provide a summary of what I’ve said. And, it doesn’t matter if the video was 35 minutes long or the article 8,000 words — the summary is always one sentence.
And, I’m always being told (sometimes asked) what I’m saying.

For Your Game
- 15 second stories. 60 second posts. 280 character micro-blogs.
