Designed my avatar to look like a trading card. I don't really know why, I just thought it looked appropriate. Maybe because I wanted my screen
name in the image and it just seemed like a not-so-cheesy way to do it?
I am a hillbilly hippie, it describes me well. I have always been outdoorsy, but because I love nature and have an interest in its beauty and
learning from it. I'm the sort of hillbilly that is interested in pure nature and not so much the toys I can buy to play with out in nature.
The whiskey jug and the "1794" is a reference to the Whiskey Rebellion. It represents freedom to me and reminds me of what I am striving against.
The background images represent both my spirituality, curiosity and imagination.
The name itself is not only appropriate for me, but it is an intentional word play designed to make people stop and think. To make people say, "Wait
a minute! Hillbillies and hippies are about as far apart in my mind as hot and cold, so how can one be a hillbilly and a hippie?" The idea is to
simply open minds to new options that are not so black and white, left or right, good or evil, etc. It's the same basic principle as wearing a peace
sign while you wear an Army helmet that says "born to kill."
