By Gertrude Stein
Continuous present is one thing and beginning again and again is another thing. These are both things. And then there is using everything.
This brings us again to composition---the using everything.
The using everything brings us to composition, and to this composition. A continuous present and using everything and beginning again. There is an elaborate complexity of using everything, and of a continuous present and of beginning again and again and again.

What story do you find yourself telling most often and why?
Gertrude Stein’s works include Tender Buttons, The Making of Americans, and Four Saints in Three Acts.
