Ragtag Daily Prompt: Better

GarGar portrait ed

During the early years of their reign, GarGar and Pirouette pursue a policy wherein GarGar was portrayed as the dominate figure in governance. As time progressed, it became apparent to all that the opposite was true. Queen Pirouette possessed a subtlety of mind that was perfect for politics. While GarGar acted as a figurehead, presiding over Privy Council meetings, reviewing troops, welcoming ambassadors, and the like, Pirouette devised policies and put them into action. In later years, King GarGar developed the habit of calling his wife his “better half.” Those who were in the know could only nod their heads in agreement.

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.
