She knew all there was to know about dying
the holiness of it all was sacred
to the entourage as they shuffled
the deck chairs and settled in for the kill.
He lost touch with what hunkered below
the impossible obscene icy green
that grappled with the cold and won.
Who knew what we take for granted today
was the price they would pay
to pay forward the prize
of what folly to surmise
that wealthy makes wise.


Author's Note:
Well, it wasn't where I started but I'm getting in the mood for Newfoundland's Iceberg Alley I suppose.

Titanic Mistake
Funny (ironic) that we define huge blunders as
"Titanic" in nature, kind of like a "Munsen".

To me, it says "hey, somebody should have known" and now we idolize and memorialize the huge blunders just as "historical" disasters...

oh well

Nice thoughts

titanic before & after
What gets to me is how a word changed so dramatically in one evening. I didn't realize when I decided to go to Newfoundland in search of icebergs that it was the 100th anniversary of the sinking. I have mixed thoughts about what transpired after the sinking. It would have happened to some other ship eventually because .. well .. 'civilization' needs a slap in the face every so often.

Sort of like Japan and nuclear power .. made me shake my head in disbelief that they would take such chances.

Three more weeks and a bit and I'm on my way. Never been to Newfoundland before.

Interesting fact - Gander Newfoundland played host to stranded passengers when the airspace was cleared after 9/11. Their hospitality is always legendary but usually isn't as highly publicized. Newfoundland .. a bit of Ireland without a passport.
