David has been on an amazing trip in Zambia, which (I just looked on the map) is in Southeast Africa.
I'm sure he'll have many tales to tell, but here is a quite remarkable picture. Let's create some captions to share with David.
Another possibility is not a caption, but a second picture (actually a Quaker religious painting) alongside this one. It's Edward Hicks, "The Peaceable Kingdom" (http://www.worcesterart.org/Collection/American/1934.65.html) It goes with the words "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid, and the calf and the young lion and fatling together" Also in Hicks's picture is a vignette of William Penn making peace with the original people of the land. It leads to a second thought, which is that there's an important story here that you don't see. David is communicating very effectively with the lion just behind him, outside the frame of the picture.
Excuse me sir, could you move over so I can get to the tree behind you?
...and the blessing gives us peace, and the courage to dare...
"What happened to my tallit?!"
