    The Lone Cloud

         My avatar is actually a photo I took while I was out hiking recently.  There were a lot of other clouds in the sky that day, but they were all alto-cumulus and were staying in the western part of the sky.  This was the only cumulus cloud to be...

    Cat and Bird

    I like my avatar because I love cats and I love Cardinals (baseball fan) and given the depiction it does make me realize that sometimes you pursue, and other times you are pursued...either way, you need to always be on your toes and stay sharp.

    Avatar

    My avatar is a woman hanging on for dear life as she slowly slides off the cliff, hanging on by her fingernails.  This represents me and my life as I feel most times I am hanging on by a thread and at anymoment I am going to slip and fall over the cliff.  Life...

    I Made It..

    It represents something I always try to hold on to. The beauty in life. In everything. So often we look around at life and see everything wrong with it, so it's a reminder to try to see the good in everything. In simplicity. In life. It pretty much sums up who I am.

    The Fire of Holy Spirit

     It is figurative but appropriate.  The tongues like as of fire on Pentecost (Acts 2)  Hebrews 12:29 "Our God is a consuming fire"

    Changes...

    For one thing, I took my avatar picture myself.  Also, I love all that the butterfly represents--change and growth from something not that pretty to a lovely maturity.  Nifty symbolism aside, it is one of the best pics I've ever taken!

    Nuclear Droplet.

    I love the combination of a simplistic drop of water looking like a nuclear explosion. It sums me up very well, a relatively benign person who has the potential to be explosive if necessary. Great camera shot too. Unfortunately i'm not as photogenically interesting.

    EP keeps asking, so the girl in the avatar is

    not me.I chose this picture simply because I love it.She is an African model named Malaan Ajang and I thought she kinda looks like me with the eyes and dark skin and height. It just nice to see women featured who look like you instead of the same people all the time. Because...
