Flotsam and jetsam

About the blog handle.

I liked the contrast and play on words that “floating jetsam” conjures. The meanings are fittingly poetic and tragic. I feel forever lost at sea (slowly sinking, but not sunk yet). Maybe one day I’ll wash ashore.

I pull all these things I like from the shipwreck of the Internet and put them up here.

And the beat goes on la da dum da dum

Flotsam is floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo. Jetsam is part of a ship, its equipment, or its cargo that is purposefully cast overboard or jettisoned to lighten the load in time of distress and that sinks or is washed ashore. Lagan (also called ligan[2]) is cargo that is lying on the bottom of the ocean, sometimes marked by a buoy, which can be reclaimed. Derelict is cargo that is also on the bottom of the ocean, but which no one has any hope of reclaiming.
