I spotted this post on someone’s website a while ago, and thought it sounded like something we would enjoy doing. I won’t identify who did which one, maybe you can guess…
A Chinese portrait is an abstract artistic depiction of a person. Every sentence you complete provides an insight into you as a person.
“The best part of knowledge is knowing the extent of one’s ignorance.”
Old Chinese proverb…
First Chinese Portrait
If I were a sound… I would be waves crashing on rocks.
If I were an animal… I would be a horse, running free.
If I were a flaw… I would be the missing piece of a jigsaw puzzle.
If I were a season… I would be autumn, when all of Nature goes to sleep.
If I were music… I would be Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield.
If I were a movie… I would be “Legend”, the story of Merlin.
If I were a fiction character… I would be Merlin, for his magic and wisdom.
If I were a sin… I would be anger, for I have spent my life trying not to be.
If I were an element… I would be water, a sea or waterfall, river or lake.
If I were a quality… I would be courage, for you get nowhere without it.
Second Chinese Portrait
If I were an animal… I would be a cat, because freedom is so under-estimated.
If I were a wish… I would be a warm cuddle for those who feel lonely and unwanted.
If I were a shape… I would be a circle, because it has no beginning or end. The circle of truth.
If I were a song… I would be “Country Roads” so it would take me to where I belong.
If I were a character… I would be Tinkerbell, so I could grant everyone at least one wish.
If I were a film… I would be “Spartacus” because it shows the best and worst in each of us.
If I were a book… I would be the Bible and highlight the pages where you can find comfort and truth.
If I had a power… it would be to heal the bodies and souls of those in need.
If I were a sound… I would be a warm wind that frees you from your fears and lifts your soul.
If I were a flower… I would be a rose, to make someone smile and remember the good days.
So there you are, our Chinese Portraits. Can you guess which one is Anita’s and which is mine?
Feel free to have a go yourself, and you don’t have to stick to the categories we chose…
What would yours reveal about you?
