As you’ll see when you revisit the site, a new parable will appear on the splash page every week. The point I’m making in this one is people have a tendency to overlook what you’re saying in favor of seeing a similarity to what someone ELSE has said. Thus many people have taken the trouble to write to me to say how much my work reminds them of someone else (who in fact is saying the exact opposite of what I’m saying).
