I love detail, but there's a balancing act involved, between filling your story with rich detail and keeping the plot moving along. I think of it like a road. You can see the texture of the pavement right in front of you, the cracks and shadows and flecks of glitter. But you can see that the road stretches ahead of you, too; you can see that there is a path to follow.
