To a playwright, dialogues do not confine themselves to two characters; my personal record for a stage play consists of 13 distinct characters nattering away (in screenplays, eight). So I did not confine myself to just two pictures for this, my final post inspired by this week’s Challenge.
Besides, families come in all sizes and types. We have the traditional family…
…and the new traditional family.
But family doesn’t have to be just about families. After all, you can make your own.
These folks are part of a musical family that have hung out in Golden Gate Park for more than 40 years.
These gentlemen have their family, clan, tribe, or what have you. Their home? Wherever they can thrash.
Finally, this family, mentioned in a previous post.
They are all they have, so even if only for a few hours, or perhaps a few days, or years, they make their family, although in this case, “mutual protection society” might seem apropos. But at least one can make one’s own family, whether for traditional reasons, shared passions, or mutual need.
