Yep, this...is...it! MY very first thread.
For weeks I have lurked, laughed, and dared to post on your threads. Some have been kind in response to my comments; a few...not so much. I've seen your avatars and, for those of you who care to share, I am very curious about your choice.
Why did you choose your particular avatar? How does it represent you; what's its significance to you and say to your fellow ATsers specifically, if anything?
Maybe you just think it's cool and you chose it in the moment. Perhaps it reminds you of a lost love, a time of triumph, a statement about who you are in this cruel world....
I am sincerely interested. You avatar is your first representation to this community and many of them are brow raising, beautiful, creative, confusing, harsh, naturesque, funny, etc.
Mine is personal. I know this young one, held him in my arms, and watched the smile form and spread across his pudgy, adorable little face; he is in the age of innocence and hope, being loved, happy, and innocent of e v e r y t h i n g.
No hate or intolerance, no preconceived notions, no wrongdoings (the 2am diaper changes are nature's fault!) Life for this little guy will start to change soon and I wanted to preserve that innocence, the contentment in the moment, as a it is a time stamp of a life beginning in pure wonder.

My Avatar is "a new beginning".
