Ah, same here... I just tend to generalize & put ideas in a "nutshell" - skeletal brief format or mode - fashion. Then if I have the inclination, I just might fill it in more with details - dense details... obsessively. Then I act like a mad monk transcribing either illuminated manuscripts or sutras way into the night... *mad lingua-fractalist gigglefit* zHANg
