Ragtag Daily Prompt: Band

Babies 3The only piece of jewelry that Queen Pirouette wore on her hand was her wedding band. While her neck, hair and clothing might be sprinkled liberally with diamonds, rubies, pearls and other precious stones, her hands were bare, save the token of her marriage. When she was nervous, she tended to fidget with the ring, twisting it around and around with thumb and index finger of her other hand. She never removed it. When King GarGar placed it on her finger, there it stayed forever. She made certain that in death, she would be buried with it. [GarGar and Pirouette, December 22, 2019.]

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 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, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
