Ragtag Daily Prompt: Boundary

“What’s the last think you remember from the battle for control of the bridge that you fought?” The Prime Minister was trying to get GarGar, le comte des Deux Chats to divulge what had transpired during the many months he’d been missing in action.

“I’m not quite sure,” replied GarGar. I remember being thrown from my horse as I was trying to cross the riverbed. I remember thinking that I was going to drown. I’ll tell you, mon ami, monsieur le premier ministre, the boundary between life and death is immeasurably thin. I feel as though I must have died that day because I have no memory until about two weeks ago. That means that months are cloaked in darkness. It’s most distressing,” said GarGar. “I’ve about had it. I’m just glad to be home.”

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.
