Ragtag Daily Prompt: Mixed Feelings

It was with mixed feelings that Queen Pirouette listened to the Crier’s speech.

Hear ye! Hear ye! Those who can hear bend closer and listen to the words of your King GarGar, the Beloved. ‘To all and sundry within the borders of my kingdom shall acknowledge and proclaim that my eldest daughter, Princess Gargella shall henceforth be known as Crown Princess Gargella, heir to my throne, with all the privileges and responsibilities pertaining…’

His voice seemed to trail off as the Queen became lost in her thoughts. What will become of my sweet girl?

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.
