If you've read all the way from Mayhem to the Coda, you already know who's in this family portrait, all five of them.
If not, it's a nice family portrait and I have no idea who those people are but it evokes something very different than the family portraits at the beach (those are very nice too, just different).
Here's to Life, Love, The Light, Unicorns, Unintentional Gargoyles, Terribly Hairy Men with Unexpected Tails, Badgers & Guard Gnomes, Men in Black, Chuck Yeager, Supernovae, especially SN 2007bi, Nanotechnology, a Battalion of Dust Motes, Stardust, Mothers, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters, Husbands, Wives, and Lovers, Good Neighbors, Hail Mary Passes, Faith, Forgiveness, Mind-numbing Grief, Compassion, and Redemption.
Go ahead. Do the Christie Dance, you won't regret it.
I'd like to say, don't try this at home, folks, but I can't. Go for it.
