Greetings Karl.... Haven't wandered by your thread in quite a while. It's a good primer to get to know our ATS members
I like your avatar. I thought the character in the movie was pretty intense, but wise [of course he was a whackamole, but these things happen].
I think we come to associate our av's with the person, and I think yours is a fit, because to me, it projects an opposite personnae than the movie
character [but still wise].
My av is a photo I took of a blue iguana, which has since been slaughtered by a monster that broke into the cages of the Botannical Gardens. I still
can't conceive of the kind of proto-human that would do such a thing. I hope to not find out who did it; that would require a response. Of
course, the magenta and black and white bits were add-ons
I sorta identify with my av. I thought the creature was curious, and it walked right up to me as I sat crosslegged on the ground, and all but put
[her] head in my lap. I think she wanted cheese. Visitors to the park are told to not feed the iguanas, but I sensed that she was thinking......
cheeeese....... give me cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese
Turns out she was satisfied with lettuce from my sandwitch. I didn't know until that moment that they have red eyes.
I'm told that the new generation of blue iguanas are doing well, and only the adults had been caged for the night, so there are still hundreds of
them prancing about.
