One can grow up by one’s father’s side that is not history.

Perhaps one does not have a father that might be history but it is not automatically

history.

 

How many ships pass by in history.

How many rivers flow by and how many split.

Where does the river split.

The river does not ask that.

The ocean is the ocean but what is the river.

This is not the river’s answer the river is also the ocean or at least the door to the ocean.

Can the ocean be said to have a door.

History does not ask that.
