Gertrude Stein on sense and nonsense


Nonsense is sense. Sense depends on placement. Entirely on placement. Place nonsense wherever and it becomes sense, or at least Kansas City.  Sense is boring. Or rather, it can be boring, if one is searching for boredom. Which one would definitely be doing in Kansas City. In Paris boredom is not possible. True boredom must be sought, but the seeker in Paris finds everything else. Sense and boredom are sisters. Very fat sisters.
