#TenderTuesday . . . Here all of God’s creatures shall live in peace




” ‘My mate and I have retreated to this island because we live in fear of the Son of Adam,’ said the Peacock. ‘Here all of God’s creatures shall live in peace and be safe from harm.’ “


From “The 1001 Nights,” illustrated by Anton Pieck, 1943.
