Always with Grace

2014 07 16 PB Baroque Style

I was excited to see this month’s theme for Genre is Baroque. There is something about the Baroque period that stirs me with creativity, making my imagination come alive. A time of exuberance and drama as people embraced the sensual richness of expression within all forms of the arts.

Elaborate ballrooms, decorated with such grandeur. Ornate wood carvings, stunning tapestries and artwork rich with colour and emotion.

A period in history noted for being a time of “exaggerated artistic style”. The heavy stage makeup and eccentric hairstyles for both men and women certainly could give credit to that claim.

For me, it is an opportunity for a fantasy roleplay …

… glancing at the staircase he finds himself enthralled by the vision above. She appears to float, just like a feather, upon each step as she makes her descent. The unusual colour choice for the scattering of dyed flowers in her hair testament to this woman’s unique qualities. With confidence she smiles and nods to those below, lowering her eyelashes as she finally meets his gaze.

Captured by her gracefulness, he steps forward. As she reaches the last step he boldly takes her gloved hand in an invitation to dance; aware he will not be the only man to seek attention from this lady tonight.

remember tonight for it is the beginning of always

    So, PB, you must not leave us hanging. You must continue the dance as thoughts of romance swirls in his head.

      Laughs .. oh that would be cruel of me Jug to have him just having a dream, although a wonderful one at that, of his true love. In time more will be revealed I promise.
