Ragtag Daily Prompt: Sand Castle

When the royal children were small, it became routine to take them to the shore for the last two weeks of summer. Both sovereigns would pack up their households and embark on the two-day journey. As soon as water was sighted, excitement like a bolt of lightening would run through the royal suite. Changing quickly into their bathing suits, the sounds of the children laughing and crying out against the surf was music to the ears of King GarGar and Queen Pirouette.

While the older children threw themselves against the waves, young Prince GarGar built sand castles. “Someday, my son,” said Queen Pirouette, “You will build real castles.”

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.
