I was recently challenged to try to sum my life story up into a single paragraph. I really wish that I knew how to do that. I tried to cut my story down, but it ended up being much longer than the challenge permitted. Instead of the given paragraph, my story ran into seven rather long paragraphs, turning out to be over a page long.
One of these days, I might figure out how to summarize it all. Until then, I'll just keep building the story.
