There’s a reason that people paint with a broad brush. A broad brush covers more ground. A broad brush shortens the time that it takes to work. In short, a broad brush is efficient – especially if you, like me, are either too lazy or in too much of a time crunch to worry about details (or too bored by them to really be bothered).
I’m about to paint with a broad brush. Please forgive me. I understand that what I’m about to say may not apply to you, your experience, or your family. (But maybe it does.) I also realize that the paint I’m about to use is of a distinct negative hue and tint. That’s on purpose. Please bear with me, and understand that I understand that dealing in dichotomies is not a great idea. (Thanks, Jay. Good stuff.)
