Hearing from the Heart

I’m working on a story that’s a follow-up to my Lost in Translation interview from last week. In that piece, I heard about a delegate who had to step into the role of a translator during a sub-committee meeting. Don Reasoner is the coordinating the work of the translators for GC2012.

I’ll post more on this later, but thought his quote on “hearing from the heart” was relevant now.
