Ragtag Daily Prompts: Festivities

 

Fountain 7The festivities in honor of Neptune began with a sacrifice of a bull on the seashore. This was always done at sunrise. The priests in their white robes would wade into the water in order to wash the blood from their garments. Wine was then poured into the sea, as the priests murmured a prayer whose meaning were long forgotten.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, and Nigel.
