    Great Day...

    My avatar was taken not too long ago. I volunteered at a senior citizens Christmas party and had a blast! I put a lot of work into that day and the preparations leading up to it so not only is it a great memory and representation of me, it's also one of the few pictures I have...

    :D I made it in that FaceQ app.

    I think it's a little more me now. Rather than pictures of the stars and skies.

    Many Muses

    My avatar is actually a picture I use for a character I play online. I've been an avid roleplayer for a number of years online so decided to just pick one of the prettiest character pictures I had.

    My Avatar...Well, Here`S The Story...

    Since I was a teenager I was mad about motors, cars and motorcycles. I passed my bike test in 1967 and that was the start of a long love affair with two wheeled transport. That ended when I married; my wife was not keen at all on bikes then, so I confined my activities to the...

    Ever Changing

    The story about my avatar is that I like to change it. The three I have used here the most I think are the Ep swimmer which was my original avatar here. The swimmer to me represents me spiritually as I always see myself swimming though sometimes it is more like treading water...

    Best Day Of My Life In Many Years

    I'd been legally separated for over a decade (couldn't divorce because I needed to stay on his health insurance). Was visiting my sons in CO where I grew up, ran into an old school friend and fell in love for the first time. This was at a festival where I got my face butterfly...

    Actually, I don't, but I think it's fair to

    share the story of mine. In a forgotten cupboard in a corner lie the collected works of Goethe and Schiller, including the re-told folk legend of Faust, which have since then inspired much western art and stories. According to the family story, those books were passed down from...

    Comfort Food

    I love comforting others. I love holding their hand, holding them, kissing their head. & I also love being comforted. It has nothing to do with sex, I just love snuggling & physical closeness. So I'm "comfort food."

    My Logo

    The rainbow represent that I'm gay. The dripping black guitar represents my love for music and that even in my deepest depression and blackest thoughts, music brings me back. Mind you, I alternate pictures and I like to put my dogs as my profile logo.

    My avatars show my mood of the day, or how I feel, or where I would want to be.   They are all anime, all red-headed women (like me)... and that is the story.  Except on special occasions like Halloween when I choose to try and SCARE people!
