Gertrude Stein and Strokies

Yesterday during Theater History class we were talking about Gertrude Stein's writing style and something my teacher said really stuck with me.

There is no such thing as repetition. People repeat until the emotion underneath is drained.

And then, a light went on. That's it! We strokies tend to repeat ourselves and this is a beautiful way to think of why we do it. Of course there's that whole can't remember we said it thang but I prefer to look at it as Gertrude did.

I don't really want to say too much of it because I think it speaks for itself. Just soak it in. Really. I love that.
