Ragtag Daily Prompt: Breathe

Dog 1.jpgDrusilla was at a complete loss for words. Warrant in hand, the Sheriff of Catapolis had just informed her that she did not possess the necessary paperwork needed to live in the city. Dangling a set of wrist irons in front of her, he said ominously, “Next time I see you, I’ll be giving you this fine set of bracelets for you to wear for your presentation at Court.”

Just breatheDrusilla told herself. Being the King’s sister should provide her with a certain amount of protection, but being a natural daughter of the King’s late father was not the carte blanche that she’d hoped it would be. As if he were reading her mind, the Sheriff quipped , “Just because your the King’s bastard sister, don’t expect to get anything like special treatment.”

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.
