But what is it about this famous tragedy that captivates me?
Like most people, I first heard about the story when the movie was made. But I’ve loved it ever since the very first time I saw it. And I’m not sure if it’s the love story between Rose and Jack, the tragedy of the sinking, the classical music or the exploitation of the upper-class society that has me mesmerized by the movie.
I think it started with the movie, but later also became an obsession with the ship itself. I love to watch any documentary that’s about the titanic, I have bought magazines that featured articles on the ship and once I get my own place to live in I want to buy a model ship. and if I had the money I would like to go down under the sea to see the ruins of the ship for myself.
As I write down these words I am listening to the soundtrack of the movie. There’s something very exhilarating about the music. I can listen to it for hours.
I have this theory:
If there is such a thing a previous life, could it be that I had died on the RMS Titanic in the early morning hours of April 15th, 1914?
That sure would explain a lot.
