I missed Elijah’s return last night. The Captain took him on a tour of the ship after their talk.
I did the same today, but with the Purser instead. I heard from him first that the Captain has agreed to the slight course change necessary to put in at the island.
Later, Elijah added the information that the Captain’s main concern is for his fuel supply. A commodity difficult to come by these days.
The crew is a small one. They seem ready to relax in my presence, but not so in Elijah’s.
I asked the Purser if there was a quiet place in which to meditate. He showed me an empty cabin near his office.
He uses it himself.
