Ragtag Daily Prompt: Train

While Pirouette was busy memorizing her coronation oath, her intended, GarGar was busy with his own endeavors. He had decided to train Filipe, his valet, in the art of swordplay. But to what purpose? It was his intention to prove that one need not be born a gentleman in order learn this rapidly dying lost art. Many of the nobles objected to this instruction, but he had the full support of the new Queen, and that was all that mattered.

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.
