Seeing as the Titanic is something I’ve been fascinated with ever since I first heard about it when I was around 8 years old, I felt it only fitting to do a post on Tumblr on the anniversary of its sinking. Tumblr is a place where I blog/reblog things which inspire me; and the Titanic certainly had an influence on my interest in history and the study of people who have lived here on Earth before us.
In a lot of senses I believe that time isn’t linear, and so though we are seemingly getting further and further away from the actual date of the tragedy, the sinking is still something existing at this moment (as are all the other moments in every passenger’s life).
While Tumblr may not be somewhere which seems suitable to make a post like this, it is absolutely captivating to think that those on the Titanic (not specifically of course, but in the purposes of this ode) would never have imagined that over a century later people would be writing posts like this on an online ‘app’ from a remote electronic device. Especially people like me who would do almost anything to go back to the days of letter writing and necessary ship-voyaging across oceans!
Here is my homage to all those who perished or lost anyone this night exactly 102 years ago.
