Why Do Something If It Can Be Done: Quoting Gertrude Stein # 49

A hearty Happy Birthday to She Writes!

In “Alphabets and Birthdays” Gertrude suggests: “And you have to think of alphabets too, without an alphabet well without names where are you, and birthdays are very favorable too, otherwise who are you.”
Who are we? Every day in the pages of She Writes we are defining and redefining who we are in a thousand colors, in radiant, poignant beauty.
Just as Stein wrote in “Last Operas and Plays” (she must have been thinking of She Writes):
“A beauty is not suddenly in a circle. It comes with rapture. A great deal of beauty is rapture. A circle is a necessity. Otherwise you would see no none. We each have our circle.”
Welcome June 29, when we are celebrating our circles. Our literary Muses will be beating their wings over our heads, throwing rapture, quotes & kisses!
