Ragtag Daily Prompt: Pretense

When Princess Pirouette reached the home of GarGar, she found his household in an uproar. Some wept openly, while others simply bowed their heads, wringing their wrists. Abandoning all pretense of bravery, she began to weep also. “Where is my love?” She asked and she petitioned God to send her love back to her. Through her tears, she commanded his servants to put a candle in every window and to keep them burning until le comte des Deux Chats should return.

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.
