It was January, 2014 when I began having memories of Titanic, triggered one day as I was working on my computer and listening to music on the radio. The song, “The Heart Must Go On” by Celine Dion came on and it sent chills up my spine. Immediately I was guided to begin researching the passenger list of Titanic online. As I skimmed through the names and classes, a couple jumped out at me to research further.
As I read stories of the passengers aboard the great ship, I imagined what it would have been like to live in 1912 and the excitement of boarding the magnificent vessel. Most of my days back in 2014 were spent by the ocean with my Love. Whenever I would gaze out at the sea I’d begin to have flashes that didn’t seem to make sense. They were very brief, yet resulted in experiencing great emotion, as if they touched my heart in some way.
The time by the sea also made me think about my relationship with water, and how I always loved being near the sea, yet would never go in. I shared this fear with my Love and told him that I felt it was a fear I needed to overcome, especially after all this time, 30+ years. He assured me that when I was ready, he would be there for me. That was certainly reassuring.
Come back next week to learn more.
