A bright light for the masses

There's a post on Pick the Brain that speaks to something I riffed on earlier. And what I'm trying to become more grounded in. The lists and tips that proliferate on the web make it easy to do things without understanding the why of it. You really should be grounded in the why, which can make it easier to grasp and, more importantly, retain the lessons the tips and lists show. Again, the compendiums represent magic arrows, and that's all we want. But there is a whole process for taking the arrow from the quiver, finding the target, notching the arrow, and firing the arrow to the target.
