This is GREAT stuff folks !
If I had a nickle for every time I've seen & been involved in chats or discussions where it got REALLY complicated because of language - and different people's interpretation of it - I could fly us all to the Caribbean for a week long retreat !
This is why when I talk or write I really try to keep the "picture" in focus and draw attention from the "brush". Because it's really understanding the picture we all want. In that vein, I usually try to use a lot of metaphors that make the picture crystal clear- usually these either bring loud, deep belly laughs or red faced anger. Ahhhh, such is the risk of the artist. But rather that then pin cushioned by all the "brushes".
