I write stories, poetry, prose, and other forms of musings and ramblings.
A Rich Tragedy
The Ship of Dreams. The Millionaire’s Special. The Unsinkable Ship. All nicknames of the RMS Titanic. Among the 2,223 passengers were the first, second, and third class. Their stories range in every conceivable way, from their amenities to the documentation of their accounts. I will attempt to unveil unknown truths about these voyagers and the ways in which their stories have been told since the tragic day that was April 14th, 1912.

The cascading loops and strategically placed dots and symbols carry a history and culture so rich and breathtakingly beautiful that I almost felt unworthy of recreating it.
Benefits of a Paper Rose
1. It will never die. Origami is back-breaking work. You pour not only time and effort into this project, but you pour your very soul into the curls and folds of fragile pieces of paper. From the well-measured cuts to the messy glue work, you can rest assured that your hard work will take much longer to decompose than a regular rose would.
