Ragtag Daily Prompt: For Our Good

La Princesse LaLa and her twin brother le Prince GarGar le jeune sat side by side at the table, each with a bowl of cream of wheat. As neither of them was particularly fond of the hot cereal, copious amounts of butter, honey and milk were added to make a creamy, sugary concoction for the children to eat. Still, they needed encouragement to ingest their breakfast. They were informed that sometimes, we had to eat things that were a little disagreeable for “our own good.”

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.
