  12. Now that is quite memorable and contains enough food for thought to justify packing away like a slab of chocolate, for a hungry day.

  14. Oooohhhh, so sad. What sorrow could she possibly have? She's obviously a young lady of privilege, on a ship of privilege (witness the saint paintings)...perhaps she is being transported to marry someone she does not love....sigh...

  19. Was the dagger for herself, as in Romeo and Juliette, or was it for the captain of the ship....? Will we ever find out? Thanks for sharing this great take.
