Some days the humour works, some days it doesn't. When in doubt... it's jest!

Apart from all the heart break, soul break, and what have you (which must have an outlet, Im sure), I like this kind of quiet humor a lot.
A bonus point, karma point for you.

You see, I still have to learn a lot.
Thank you for the grin on my face.
Kind regards, Gus

Mine is just an artsy side angle of my face. In black and white. I took it many years ago and just liked the way it seemed ambiguous enough to use as a profile image without revealing too much.

it's been interesting to hear everybody's stories behind their avatars, what members are inspired by and how they have changed as they move forward on du :]

looking back on using avatars throughout my years on DU, for a good while i was using art illustrations by a korean artist called daehyun kim or better known as moonassi, he's often known as the man with no identity who always uses non descriptive clothing and expressionless faces in the characters he creates, he often omits to the time, location and gender of his characters & if a scene is good or bad due to shifting the viewers attention on the movements and actions of his characters rather than facial expressions and emotions, i suppose these art illustrations relate to my core and has shaped my approach to my way of living, my journey and art on many levels.

nowadays i am a bit more content in my own skin and using my own picture as my avatar, there was a good few years i never took pictures of myself due to image related issues and going through transition, it's been nice noticing the small changes moving forward. :]

My avatar is me, 7-8 years ago, when I was in my late 50s. Sitting at a caf here (Portugal) where I had my camera, having taken a photo of some high mineral content rock-dust which I could scrape off for free in 'the commons' wilderness, to use for plants.
Anyway, he looked at the camera, then suddenly took this photo. I liked it. The name you see is my name. If you wish, pencil in some extra lines on my face to bring it up to date.

once upon a time there was a Tree

it rose up  
from a seed  
and  
stood tall  

the elements  
found it  
too tall  

clouds  
tried to  
make it fall  
sending a bolt  
for its gall  

it stood  
with a ripped tip  
and a scar
on its heart  

the winds  
they
did not appreciate  
the resistance  
so they tried  
pushing it down  
make it bend  
storm after storm  

and it stood  

the sun  
and the moon  
they too
took notice  
and conspired  
for the Tree  
had dared
to inspire  

they made it
cast shadows  
of all lengths and shapes  
day and night  
and yet it stood  
resolute  

when it lived  
it was a home  
a sanctuary
for all things life
and when it died  
still survived  
as an inspiration  
in defiance  

...
