The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#139]

Henry Ian Cusick plus one at the Tag the World Triathlon in Hawaii last year. [Was it just last year?...] The young lady is familiar to me but I can't place her. Does anyone know if she is a celebrity, on a show or something? Or maybe she just resembles someone I know.

What?...You say you haven't looked at the girl in the picture yet?...I can't imagine why not.

Speaking of triathletes, I follow the blog of Ian's former couch Marion from her present home in Australia. She's going through a tough time right now with the sudden onset of Bell's Palsy, but she's as determined as ever. I'm sending good thoughts Marion's way.
