When my daughter was not well, she enjoyed helping me choose and create avatars. It was fun for us and she expressed herself through my pics. As time
has gone on, she has not felt the urge as often (to participate in the process) although, they both (my daughters) comment and give approval or not
for my selections. For some time, the woman or the birds or both were in cages and that time has passed so...
I change it quite frequently (I think) and the change, usually, depends on mood or if I find a picture that I love and want to look at for awhile.
The theme will almost always involve a woman, not only because I am a woman ( I have quite a few times been mistaken for a man on ATS-no I am NOT
anti-man) and am raising two women but, women are...well...beautiful to me. I have a life long affection for birds (even the ones that crap on my
car!) and their freedom of movement and their song. The woods and nature are where I would prefer to be all of the time but, alas, work and home call
and we can't play all of the time. Pfft!

P.S. Wanted to add that I look at folks avatars also. I wonder why they chose what they did (If it's not obvious like politically motivated or a
I don't often view ATS on my phone (only to read if I do) and am usually on a computer so I see the avatars and associate them with the person not
even seeing the name. Likewise on the phone, I can recall the last avatar when I see the name. It's a natural association, to me, to equate the post
with a picture in my mind of the member.
