Tundra-Venice: Chapter 1

COREY STEIN from Sunland – California

“If there was no geography no geographical history would there be any human mind not as it is but would there would there be any human mind.” (Gertrude Stein)

Corey Stein going to Chevac seven years ago to see a cousin took a quite bad panoramic photograph of the snow. Back to Los Angeles she saw it was looking more like the sand of Venice Beach. Chapter I started with that and was called

TUNDRA-VENICE

(Chevac-Alaska, Venice-California)

“Looking down is the same as passing over.

Snow is always astonishing when it is looked at.

But the more astonishing when the trees the bare trees make shadows on it.

Dogs do behave as they please that is as they naturally please until they are told not to.

Anything like that is annoying and annoying has something to do with the human mind. It means it is attached and waits not to go away but to stay. In this way annoying or annoyance is a symptom of there being a human mind.

Yes a human mind.

And what is it.

Is it that all the same.” (Gertrude Stein)

What does she say. She says that Benjamin Lincoln and Aaron Neville and herself were born in the same month and day the 24th of January and that this nobody can deny. Can any one this deny not even now and she does not but she would have liked better April 4th. Human nature cannot know that there is no use in being a baby girl born January 24th if she is to grow up to be a woman. (R.A. in the mood of Gertrude Stein)
