Here’s a little story I wrote to accompany this – One day, many millions of moons ago in the month of May, mayhem broke out in the Jungle of Manners which lies just a little south of the Region of Lemons, Limes and Licorice where the sun is black and the moon is green and all manner of citrus ripen and grow as large as your head, like melons! A small black pearl encrusted peacock entered the emeraldine gates of kiwi protected by the Curlews of Catastrophe and there was a very strong Exclamation Mark as all the other animals said “Hmmmmmphhhhh!!!!!!!!!”. For one thing, they were unfamiliar with Pearly Peacocks of Pearlescent Persuasion and for another, they didn’t like strangers or anything new and unusual. For that matter, they thought they were fairly unique and not in need of new friends, so they treated anyone new to the Kingdom with a bit of contempt and surliness. Now, the peacock wasn’t affected by this attitude at all and hopped on the back of a young Paisley Elephant, parading along the Pier of Purity, and said in a very friendly tone “Hello there beautiful!” The elephant got quite a fright as you can imagine. He couldn’t turn his head quite all the way ‘round to see who the intruder was, and by this time was working up some perspiration in a thin layer all over his Paisley patterns. The peacock hopped down on seeing the elephant’s distress and managed to present a pretty feather, which the elephant tried to shake with his trunk. On realising the peacock meant him no harm, they became firm friends and a sense of wonderment came over the entire Province to see a Pearly Peacock of Pearlescent Persuasion riding on the back of the Little Paisley and Lime Elephant, and they too realised it might be nice to welcome strangers to the Province if in the future, they were to find life more interesting and add some diversity to their Jungle. Instead of challenging strangers, the example set by the Pearly Peacock and the Paisley Elephant, caused them to welcome strangers and to take an interest in them. The Jungle of Manners was renamed The Jungle of Unique Diversity and Manners and with that, many more generations of Pearly Peacocks were added, along with iridescent Orangutangs, exquisite Mandarin Fish, all kinds of creatures great and small of every amazing variety, and rather than finding themselves fearful and overrun, they found their kingdom grew in love, strength and beauty each and every day.
