Why your avatar?
Why did you choose the avatar you did? Is there any special significance behind it? Or, why have you decided not to add an avatar?
This may be too personal or revealing for some, only share what you are comfortable with, but I thought it might be some fun, lighthearted chit chat about our profiles.
Funny you should ask this, SC. I just came up with one a couple days ago.
I thought if I was actually going to be here for awhile, maybe it was time to add one. I also didn’t know how to do it. Yes, I hand my phone to teens and tell them what I want. But, had to figure this one out myself, obviously!
I love gardening and I love color, and I love lilacs.
On the legacy TMB board, I had a dog snuggling with a cat to symbolize my wife and I.
On the new board, I wanted to do something different so I chose a unicorn with multiple colors to represent my unique personality.
Recently, I changed to a lion with multiple colors.
I guess the significance of the current one is The Lion of Judah yet the same appeal of mulitple colors.
And to make sure to clear up the multi-colors, this is not in anyway supporting the gay lifestyle at all.
My old avatar was a painting I liked of purple tents (a play off my username tents of purple) however I couldn’t find a picture of that same painting online again in order to recreate my avatar for this new website so I found an abstract picture with purple in it instead.
Like Brynna, I love lilacs and all things purple…but didn’t have any pictures that would translate well to such a tiny picture. I went through the pictures on my computer and found a pretty flower that was close up enough to still be discernible when shrunken. Although I do also love daffodils (it’s the reason I took the picture), the season they represent, and they are cheerful, which I need to see often. I’m also a little “daffy”, so there’s that. 😀
My avatar is a symbol from a cartoon I watched when I was a kid called Reboot. It was the first fully computer animated weekly kids cartoon about a city inside a computer and the people who live there. I’ve always liked the look of the symbol. It’s obscure and super nerdy, kind of like me!
