I saw the twinkling silhouette of Tórshavn embracing a shadow ship harbor under a black velvet sky. Nightcap on Norröna. As I was promenading on the deserted upper decks, a sea breeze sprang up. Inside: Dim light staging the ferry’s evening gown. The belle of the ball, ready for another waltz across the ocean.
Each time we travel, we get swallowed by an intermediate world, a time and place somewhere between Hello and Goodbye. Nightcap on Norröna: Soon afterwards, whispering waves rock me to sleep. Goodnight, you princes of Tórshavn, you travelers and kings of the sea. Bon voyage.
