Ragtag Daily Prompt: Rain

GarGar’s sudden recovery was seen as proof of Divine intervention. The prayers of the entire nation seemed to have accomplished what all the doctors in the world had failed to do. Calling for his riding cloak, he expressed the desire to go hunting. “But my lord,” said his majordomo, “It’s raining!”

Gesturing toward the window, GarGar replied cheerfully, “I want to feel the rain on my face. Send word to Princess Pirouette that I am-” He stopped himself in mid-sentence. “No! Wait! I will ride to the palace and surprise her myself.”

Moving from behind a coromandel screen, Pirouette said, “There’s no need for that. I’m here, my love.”

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.
