Ragtag Daily Prompt: Tumble

It was a great day for the prime minister. For his many years of service to his King, he was to receive a knighthood. While his friends at court that it was about time he be so honored, there were others who felt that he was unworthy. After all, wasn’t he of low birth? Hadn’t he renounced his priestly vows? More than that, didn’t he enrich himself at the expense of King and country? Rather than see him achieve such high estate, they would prefer to watch him tumble down in disgrace.

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.
