Ragtag Daily Prompt: Salty

Their Majesty’s Ship La Princesse was christened by Queen Pirouette. To the sound of canon fire, fife and drum, she left her moorings and broke the foam with her prow. A mighty war vessel, La Princesse was commissioned by the Queen in honor of her three daughters, Gargella, Pirouette the younger and LaLa. The Queen was very proud of her “girls” and wished the world to know it. By setting this machine of war to sail the salty seas, the Queen announced to the world, “I am the mother of girls, and proud of it!”

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.
