Rav Shimshon Zatzal, taught us that a picture is NOT “worth a thousand words”. In fact a picture is worthless in that it tells an outright lie.
As an example, he asked us to consider a picture of two women lighting candles on Erev Shabbos. The women themselves look the same. Each one is lighting candles. Consider, however, one woman is silently praying for he older daughter to finally find her soul mate, whilst the other is praying for her wayward son to return to the proper path. While the picture itself is the same, the silent tears, the searing pain in their hearts and their fervent supplications to Hashem are very diferent!
We all present as “pictures” as we take this walk through life.
Sometimes, the picture looks the same, but the dynamic is different.
Now is such a time.
