In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Connect the Dots.”
“you and I, son we know history takes a longer course, don’t we?”
I am not sure how to get rid of the italics. I have to put this in a post. The easy thing to do would be to just say that I found it in a book that I just finished for book club. I chose the book because I love the author. I read another book by him that prompted me to chose his second novel. The first book was About Grace. This one is called All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
I am not sure which character said this but it is an interesting statement. Of course history takes a longer course.
It takes as long it needs to take I would think. There is no measure of time when it comes to history. We can only look back at it. History is always happening. Present past and future to be.
History in the making. What would be a shorter course. Time can be long and painful or it can be short and sweet.
Maybe with all of the suffering, history can take a longer course. This novel was set in world war ll during the occupation of France.
There is always suffering somewhere. Time almost stands still.
