Thoughts lately focus on family portraits...
1) Family portraits are a fake moment in time of the best versions of ourselves. We are dressed nicely. We are smiling. We look happy.
2) Hanging family portraits in your own home is odd to me. You know what you look like. You know what your spouse looks like. You know what your kids look like.
3) Those portraits are really there as a passive-aggressive way to make other people look at them and compliment you and / or your family.
