Ragtag Daily Prompt: Swing

Another day, another ball! Or rather, it was another night, another ball. Princess Pirouette’s social calendar was so crowded that she was forced into the uncomfortable position of declining invitations. Sometimes she would attend two balls in one night. Poor GarGar! His days were filled with important business, such as training recruits or attending Privy Council meetings. He found that his reserves of energy were being sorely tapped, and often, he would ask Pirouette to go by herself to whatever function was on the calendar that day. She was only too happy to oblige. She found GarGar to be an average dance partner at best. Oh, he could swing her on his arm like the best of them, but when it came to grace of movement, she found him wanting.

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.
