Notes: THERE

DRESSED-FANCY - (2h)[5], POs ><, FOs up, alt. brush up the chest.

SET-ASIDE - (2h)[B], POs > DS, with DH higher, palms are pressed against imaginary wall that is pushed to one side.

DESIRE - WISH.

EARTHLY-LORD - L-KING. I glossed it this way because "Lord" usually refers to God and I sign that with the hand traveling upwards as opposed to touching DS hip.

GROUP-TRAVEL - (2h)[C], POs ><, FOs away, hands are held close but not touching and move off together as if a group were traveling.
