04:44 pm: The Donkeys Prospero

A reader and friend who is a fan of donkeys and who is a supporter of a wonderful donkey sanctuary in England, sent me some delightful photos of donkeys she picked out to represent the various characters from the Prospero’s Daughter Trilogy.  I like to think of this as what happens the day that Logistilla’s staff malfunctions and turns the family into donkeys.  Maybe there’s a short story idea in there somewhere.

Miranda, Mephisto, Cornelius, Theo, Titus and Erasmus

 

 

 

(Donkey’s real names: Zena-a ladylike donkey, Ashley-a goofball donkey, Mr. Khan-a levelheaded donkey, Ravelin–an olderbrother like donkey, Skippy-a big donkey, and Mars-the donkey who steals the ball away from the others.)

 

Logistilla

( Hirondelle-a donkey who is very jealousy of her sister.)

Another shot of Mephisto (with his favorite boot) and Titus

 

Gregor

(A very black donkey named Nero.)

Ulysses

Donkey name: Fred Snook

The Dread Magician Prospero Himself!

(Real name: Torrent)

 

Some other folks outside the family:

Mab

(Donkey:  Hercule Poitou–one can just picture him in a fedora thinking “Harebrain!”)

 

Astreus Stormwind

 

Mr. and Mrs. Claus

 

The Elf Queen Maeve and her Ladies

 

 Hell’s Minions

 

Calvin the Bully Boy

 

Caurus (a.k.a. Longnose)

 

 

Ariel

Ivor as Ariel “Why, that’s my dainty Ariel! I shall miss thee; 
                             But yet thou shalt have freedom. So, so, so.”

 

Aerie Ones Cavorting

 

Eureynome –The Unicorn

 

 

And there they are together again.

Why would it need to malfunction -- oh, there's one for Logistilla herself.
