Ragtag Daily Prompt: Delicate

Babies 3_18_2Fragment of a letter from the Caninian ambassador to his king regarding Queen Pirouette:

Her Majesty is possessed of remarkable beauty and poise. Never have I seen a woman more fashioned by God to near perfection. Her complexion is without blemish and is an honest example of “peaches and cream.” When she moves about the Palace, she seems to float, so graceful is she. Enthroned, her regal bearing induces one to obeisance without any qualm. Indeed her beauty is heaven sent, delicate, refined like an angel.Babies 3_19_1Upon receipt of this letter, the King of Caninia recalled his ambassador from the Court of King GarGar and Queen Pirouette.

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.
