More Gertrude

The composition is not there, it is going to be there and we are here. This is some time ago for us naturally...Nothing changes from generation to generation except the things seen and that makes a composition.
(Stein, 1926 in Composition as Explanation)

She also says this in the same essay, which I'm trying to connect to her idea of continuous present.
