What can one possibly write about when so much has been said already about a topic? One can stay silent, or one can write and add to what so many are eloquently covering.
The category is the human condition. It’s a vast topic and what can be said equally as varied. I intend on doing a lot of imitating, but not necessarily pulling off the depth and quality of so many present writers and bloggers. Mostly I’ll be stealing their ideas and restating their points.
Tangled within, tangled without;
People are tangled in tangles.
And so I ask you, Gotama—
“Who can untangle this tangle?”
A wise one of stable virtue,
Developing mind and wisdom,
A prudent and ardent person—
They can untangle this tangle.
—Verses from the SAMYUTTA NIKAYA, quoted in UNTANGLING SELF by ANDY OLENDZK
