What is your avatar for this site? And why did you select it?

My avatar is of my dog who is so much like me. He even has anxiety issues. I selected this particular picture because even though he looks extremely cute in it, he's actually highly stressed. It's a gentle reminder that outward appearance doesn't really reflect how we may feel on the inside. So be kind and gentle to everyone and yourself.

My two companions. They keep me reasonably anoid.

My avatar is an anime character from Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom! Her name is Katarina Claes she is kind and caring and sweet and has a sweet tooth just like me . she was supposed to be a villain but she avoided becoming a villain because her life was at steak . I change my avatar from time to time 😄

And they're incredibly intelligent! That's my daughters favorite part of dolphins. :)

My avatar was a photo taken in 1944 during World War 2 on the occasion of me first walking unaided. I remember the event. It was taken on the roof of the flats where we lived in Chelsea in central London.

Come nightfall and we would retire to the air raid shelter built beneath the flats as the Luftwaffe arrived for one last attempt to bomb us into submission during the 'Little Blitz' that preceded the V1 and V2 flying bombs.

The photo is a typical happy snap - but only a few hundred miles away over the English Channel people were dying in their thousands daily in battle zones from bombs, bullets and lack of food. Looking at the photo you would never have guessed.

I chose this photo because it reminds me of a carefree period without a worry in the world when life lay ahead.

I just thought it was bright and pretty

MadBunny got me started to changing my avatar. Most of them are coloring projects, except when Imaaan and I had fun with sunglasses. Now I think we’re having fun with head coverings. Atleast I’m having fun with it! 😁💂‍♀️

And here I thought that I inspired the avatar changes..lol. Missy your colouring projects are always 🔥

My current pic is of a tribal warrior princess. I selected it cuz it portrays strength. I like to switch up my avatars depending on whatever floats my boat at the moment. LadyZen

Oops! I just realized that your Warrior Princess doesn’t have a head covering. What to do, what to do? 🤔😁

some of the flora around where I live - nature brings me peace

cute dog btw! and I'm all for the sentiment he brings us. :)

A sunset I saw coming home after a bad day, I thought it was beautiful even if all I could catch a picture of was some clouds lol

Clara Bow, silent screen actress 1920s. Just think she's cool. I actually should have chosen Greta Garbo, as she would say, "I vant to be left alone"

I loved all the responses! It really brightened my day!

Love the comments here too! I don't have an avatar - just a logo. Maybe I should replace it with a photo:-)
