If you knew you were going to be put to death in the morning, how would you spend your last night?
For the fictional princess, Scheherazade, she spun tales of magic, mystery, romance, and deception as if her life depended on it.
As children, we learn of Scheherazade and her one thousand and one nights of storytelling but we aren’t often told her stories must be so captivating and so perfectly planned that the king is left at dawn, waiting impatiently for the next part of the story to be told. If her story ends too soon or doesn’t command all the king’s attention, Scheherazade will die. Of course, the king was as enchanted by the voyages of Sinbad,
Ali Baba, and Aladdin as kids are today but so much of what delighted the king were the stories of love and lust also interwoven into these tales of magic and adventure.
