Corner View "Serendipity"

The Three Princes of Serendip
"In ancient times there existed in the country of Serendippo, in the Far East, a great and powerful king by the name of Giaffer. He had three sons who were very dear to him. And being a good father and very concerned about their education, he decided that he had to leave them endowed not only with great power, but also with all kinds of virtues of which princes are particularly in need."
For more story: the three Princes

  6. its on my weekend reading plans to to read the rest of the story! what fun to find out about it thru this weeks CV. And your illustration above goes with the mood so beautifully!! A good time of year for prince tales and fancy!!xo♡

  7. I never knew that story, came across it for this theme for the first time. I still wonder how to translate the word "serendipity" into Danish and Faroese. What would you say in Dutch?

  8. In dutch it is serendipiteit, but even so, I have never heard of the word!

  9. Hello again Susanna. That would work too in Danish, but I have never heard anyone use it. "Lykketræf" perhaps, but that just means "stroke of luck" or "happy coincidence". I would like to keep the literary reference of "serendipity" ;)
