Blown Apart

Everyone is different! People have their reasons for doing things. Often others suffer while living under the same roof, expecting one attitude, when to the contrary some family members are uncanny in their ways which affect rituals, space, and lifestyle.

We aim to live our lives the way we see fit: waking and getting up, finding our own space without interfering with others where possible to have our activities, minding our own business, and fitting it to others habits and pastimes. Now after an implosion (cave-in) of the submarine which recently sunk to the bottom of the ocean, it’s clear all five participants have lost their lives in a tragic ending to their deep-sea dive.


The shell of the submarine having been made of carbon fiber, there were doubts if it could withstand the pressure from its deep-sea voyage. Now that rescuers have found shrapnel in a debris field nearby, they confirmed that the vibrations heard in the region, days prior, must have been the catastrophe occurring.

The five explorers were in the North Atlantic Ocean visiting the Titanic wreck, which had sunk on 14th April, 1912. Observers had lost contact while submersing to the shipwreck some 3,800m (12,467ft) below sea level near Newfoundland, Canada, about 400 miles off the coast. All five were “true explorers” who shared a distinct spirit of adventure.


Parts of the submersible were found on Thursday 22nd June, 2023, approximately 1,600ft (487m) from the bow of the Titanic wreck. It had disappeared on Sunday.


The morale of the true story is to tread carefully, observe limitations, and above all consider others whatever your circumstances.


Have an inspirational day!
