Ragtag Daily Prompt: Resilience

Pansy 1One reason I love pansies so much is their resilience. Through the most bitter Winter’s night, there they are in the morning with frost on their blossoms. Delicate of beauty, yet hardy of nature, the pansy could easily rank as my favorite flower. That is, of course, if I were given to such foolishness as trying to rank God’s creations according to their beauty.

This is my contribution to Ragtag Daily Prompt’s Monday challenge: resilience.

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.
