Above, Gary Oldman and Dan Radcliffe in a scene that presages what I think is a monumental tragedy in Harry Potter--that Harry should lose his surrogate father, Sirius Black, just as he found him.

A Brit a Day [#351]
I love the idea that our "family" can be people we aren't related to by blood. I call it found-family. There's a lot to be said for having to love the family we're born with, but I think we are equally without choice when we find like-minded friends close by in our everyday life--we have to love them, they are so much like us that to deny we love them is to deny we love ourselves. I am an only child, but I am blessed with brothers and sisters.
