not everyone sees the same way or understands the same way, just as Tsiu and Kini and Sindhu might all look at the Emperor's ladle but know different stories about it.

Yep, that's a big one. Incidentally, the Weaving Girl's Orchard is a reference to the Milky Way. There are several versions of the legend in various parts of Asia, but the general idea is that the weaving girl (or handmaiden, or celestial maiden) is on one side, and her love is on the other, and they're only able to meet once a year, on a certain holiday. So it represents longing, distance from loved one, hope for being reunited. Which is both part of Kini's story but also Tsiu's path in that first book. I'm just hesitant b/c I'm wondering whether it's too close to the real-world legend (name-wise), and whether it wouldn't make any sense at all to someone who misses the two throwaway lines that reference it. Heh. Always something.

Still pondering...
