I hope I'm posting in the right place to request an avatar?
I thought, instead of telling you what i 'want', I would tell you a bit about 'me', and perhaps those interested in challenging their intuition
might like to try creating an image that 'fits'?
The main thing about me is that, even though I turned 50 this year, my user name (lostgirl) is self descriptive in nature...for several reasons -
1. I have suffered clinical depression since childhood - consequently, having felt 'old' for as long as I can remember, I basically missed out on
being 'young', lost out on my 'girl'hood...and yet, I also feel a sense of never having really grown up ("lostgirl" as in Peter Pan's "lost
boys"). It's like part of who I am is the 'girl' I would have been...
2. Like many ATS members, I've never really felt at home in 'this' world - always felt out of place and 'different' to everyone around me...feel
a sense of not being where I 'belong', lost...
3. I 'resonate' to specific types of narratives in books, movies, & (though don't watch much at all) TV...examples:
Stories of myth & legend, magic, fairytales - "Lord of the Rings", "The Chronicles of Narnia", "Once Upon a Time", "The Wizard of Oz"...
(I realized some time ago that I have always had a particularly strong affinity to narratives involving 'portals' or traveling from this world to
others - Narnia, Oz, Neverland, etc.)
Well, that's probably way more than anyone wanted to know
so have at it...
And thank you!
