Yeh, it kinda sucks when you discover your schtick has already been done, and done better. But it's also comforting to know other people kinda know where you're coming from, and even think it worth writing about.
Brendan, the other day, talked about one of the side effects of heavy training is the limitations of thought. I guess that is one thing that fills the void that Al Burian talks about. To throw yourself into a task, a belief, a faith, is too put off the realisation that we surround ourselves by construct. This blog entry is just one such activity, just as drawing a comic is. Even listening to Taylor Swift, as I am now, is one more way too propagate this myth of meaning.
I'm not sure I can stop thinking. And more puzzling of all, I don't know if it's a bad thing.
SHIT THIS PLACE IS BECOMING FORMULAIC.
