Family portraits..

By Vichara

A collection of words was invited to gather, have a discussion and some family photos taken. At first it was a bit chaotic. Some of the words did not know where to go or even if they knew if they should be there in the first place. One of the words put up such a fuss that a couple of the other words walked away in frustration. Things finally calmed down after about 20 minutes but it was all stirred up as some punctuations showed up curious what all these words were gathered together and they were not invited. Well as you can imagine things stirred up once again until order stepped in. The word “order” always seemed to know what to say and it was the explained that they were gathered for a various family photos and if they could please listen to the directions from the photographer. Everyone perked up for a photo and complied with the photographer for the first pose. After many shots they gathered around the photographer’s laptop to see the many groups of this family posing together in some classic poses. First shot looked like this “Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail”. The second shot, “The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled”, the third “One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody”. Then “The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled” and “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle”. One right after another these beautiful family shots poured out and on to the screen and then while the photographer wasn’t looking a couple of the humorous members of the family snuck this one in…”My brother thinks he's a chicken - we don't talk him out of it because we need the eggs.
