My avatar is to remind me that even though I feel very trapped (wheelchair bound, small backyard) most of the time that beauty can be found. I took
my avatars photo looking to the heavens with a star trail photo which reminds me everyday to look for something beautiful or astonishing.

fact he wants souls instead of cheeseburgers greatly amuses my simple mind

the inevitable repercussions that will come with such reckless action.
