The blues in black and white
Now I think I get it.
Some people see things as black and white. Other people see most of life as shades of gray.
For now, I won't characterize either in terms of politics, religion, or whatever--partly because it isn't that pat.
Those mindsets are so fundamentally different that they're pretty much irreconcilable--and it becomes exceedingly difficult for a "shades of gray" person to converse with or sometimes make sense of a "black and white" person.
Mostly it isn't worth the trouble. I really should learn that lesson once, instead of having to relearn it two or three times a year.
Before anyone at LISNews gets all upset: The lesson doesn't have anything to do with interactions at this site. Yet.
And credit goes to Randy Travis, or the songwriters for that particular song, to be sure.
