Ragtag Daily Prompt: Memorize

The man, still on one knee, closed his eyes and bowed his head. “If you don’t know who I am, then I have nothing to live for.” He spoke quietly, almost as if he were talking to himself.

This did not sound like the GarGar that Queen Pirouette had known and loved. She thought that she had memorized his face, but this was not the case. As she mentally reviewed her personal catalog of his features, his nose, his eyes, his mouth, she realized that she was unable to piece them together to form an image in her mind. Overcome with distress, she shouted at the man. “Just tell me your name! Answer me! Who are you?”

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.
