Ragtag Daily Prompt: Bottle

Princess Pirouette spurred her horse further up the path. It was a warm, sunny day, just perfect for a ride in the park. GarGar, le comte des Deux Chats rode beside her. Neither spoke. In recent days, they’d settled into a comfortable silence that belied their passion. It was as if everything that needed to be said had been said and now the only form of communication necessary involved looks and gestures. It was a new experience for Pirouette who had always been on the talkative side.

GarGar reached into a basket that was hanging on the side of his horse. From it he drew a bottle of wine. “Would you care for a sip, my dear?” He asked. “No, thank you, GarGar, but help yourself.” With that GarGar took a deep gulp directly from the bottle. Who needs a glass when you’re riding? He thought.

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.
