Angel turns Thief

It seems that there was split “voting” on The Faces of an Angel. Your thoughts, which by the way were very kind, represent pretty much what I feel too: she was so cute in many of the shots, in different ways. Therefore, it’s hard to pick a winner, but if I was force to, I would pick this one, as some of you also did.

But as it turns out, our Angel is not always who she appears to be. I was acting Paparazzi the other day, and look what I discovered at the end of my lens.


Clara: Hmm… I would sure like to play with those marbles.


Clara: “Isak, can I play too?”
Isak: “Just wait a second, okay!”


Clara: Wow! This bag is full of them!


Clara: Okay… he’s looking away. I’ll just grab this little string here, and…


Clara: Dam-di-du-di-doh… quietly we go…
Isak: “What in the…?


Isak: “Oh, no you don’t!”
Clara: “No, no, no, no…nooooo!”


Louis: “Maybe she wouldn’t do that if you let her play with you?”
Isak: “But we we’re just in the middle of a game!”


Back to the game area.
Clara: “Mask? [This is what she calls our neighbor, Max.] Can I have a marble from you?


Max: “Sure, let me get one from my box.”
Clara: “Really! Oh, thank you!”


Max: “Here you go!”


Clara: “Thank you, Mask! At least there is one nice person here…”

What lessons can we learn from this? Don’t steal? Of course, this is fundamental. But maybe also: if the rich would share some of their wealth with the poor, maybe the poor wouldn’t be forced to steal.

Reader: “Ah, you’re just saying that to defend Clara.”
Louis: “Why, yes… of course. After all… she is my angel!”

  1. Ah…but she is such a cute little thief! In any case – how do we know she really meant to “steal” the marbles? Perhaps she was only “borrowing” them, and fully intended to return them to their rightful owner, once she had had a chance to play with them herself! Three cheers for Max for being so kind and generous with his own marble collection!

  2. I love the photo you picked – it was one I liked best, though they are ALL adorable. 🙂 This was so cute and it made me chuckle too. 🙂

    Photo no 5 is just priceless – the way she happily walks away with her catch the second Isak turns to discover his bag of marbles is gone..
