Ragtag Daily Prompt: Elevate

“In order to make you a worthy spouse for our beloved heir, Princess Pirouette, we shall elevate you, GarGar, le comte des Deux Chats to the position of Prince.” Times being what they were, the old King spoke from a prepared script. As per usual, the prime minister stood behind the throne and to one side. Still as a statue, the only movement that could be detected in the old King’s first minister was his lips which moved silently in tandem with the King’s. There was one innovation, however, because the Princess also stood behind the throne, to the other side from the prime minister. Her hands as always were folded in front of her, her engagement ring conspicuous in its absence.

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.
