Titanic... 98 years ago

I meant to post on April 15, but life was crazy. I barely had a chance to think about the Titanic. Luckily, I was reminded--reminded! Me, the girl who used to wake up by chance at 2:20 a.m. every year without setting my alarm, had to be reminded at 10:00 a.m. that it was the commemorative anniversary of Titanic's sinking on April 15.

Though slightly embarrassed to confess what I just did, I think it still important to remember. I did watch clips of Titanic with my husband yesterday morning. Don't worry, though, May 7 is right around the corner, and while I am obsessed with Titanic, there is a special place in my heart for the Lusitania. I will be posting then as well. Until then, please watch the following clip of Titanic survivors' tales taken in the 1970s.

It's about thyme time.

So, this blog is really supposed to be based on me as a writer and history enthusiast. What happened to that?

Good question.

I really don't know. She has kind of faded into the whirl of typing minutes, grading essays, editing articles, a desk job, students, and, where my free time has really gone, cooking. When I'm not cooking, I am on the internet searching for new recipes. If you haven't noticed, this blog has definitely gone that way. It probably still will too, but I would like to refocus my energy on something I have loved in the past and believe I will continue to love... writing.

I'm considering this. When you see the badge on my blog, you'll know I've begun.

I also plan to read a lot more.

We'll see. Goals again.
