"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."

My choice of avatar...

Once you are able to add your own avatar, let us know about the image you have chosen.

(If you change your avatar too.)

Mine is a bit boring, but self explanatory.

    I have changed my avatar into my dog because I love it so much. It is always glad when I come home and its eyes always shine for me.

    I drew a picture of a yellowtail by myself. It's so simple that it can be seen as any other kinds of fish though.

    Nice drawing @Yellowtail. Shouldn't it have a yellow tail?

    ;) I have choice my own painted cat in aquarell, but I want change it in the future, because I find it some faint for my avatar. I don't know what, I will see later!
  • prateekprateek Posts: 243 ✭✭✭
    My avatar is painting of mine and I want to be what I am. So I have used this avatar on my profile picture. :)
  • YellowtailYellowtail Posts: 756 ✭✭✭✭
    You're right that the tail should be yellow. But I don't worry about the details!

    I'm not fond of this black faced, smiling avatar in pink background. I look forward to having more options to choose avatars. I just joined, so am trying to participate in leaving comments while learning what's here in the forum.
  • LynneLynne Teach HomePosts: 9,745 mod
    @clair - You should be able to change your avatar now. (There is a reason for the restriction. Some "new members" can be naughty, and there's only so many naughty pictures I can be bothered to look at.) :disappointed:

    Your dog is adorable. I bet it is wonderful to go home and see it every day. I have a cat, but she ignores me most of the time, so it just isn't the same!

    Hi @Jobric!
    As far as I know, getting the second star will allow you to change the avatar. And all you need for that is just a few more posting. Good luck!

    My avatar is an art which I captured in my mobile camera in one of my solo trip in a festival.
  • gokergoker Posts: 66 ✭✭
    I prefer hang out and work at nights like owls.
    Also i think this animals are interesting and cool.
    I found my avatar on google.
  • ZomZom Shadok Posts: 2,854 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Okay @goker, you're a night owls. Often owls are depicted as being wise and thoughtful and so I was very curious about which characteristic you'll choose. ^^
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.
  • gokergoker Posts: 66 ✭✭
    Really good question, i liked it.
    I would choose thoughtful. I am very young to be wise but i'm working on it.
    And i didn't see your answer about why did you choose your avatar, why? :)

    My choise of avatar is a butterfly. I like butterflies, I find them fascinating! When they are caterpillars they struggle for being butterflies and this is very impressive !

    You can be born like a caterpillar but if you struggle you can be a butterfly. This is in your hand!
    Everytime I see a butterfly this is what I think and I find courage and endurance.
  • hazel27hazel27 Posts: 570 ✭✭✭
    In my avatar is a picture of my cat Milka. Do you believe she turns 18 this year? :p
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,186 ✭✭✭✭
    She became adult now. You have to find tomcat for her. Invite us when you fixed their marriage :D ;) @hazel27
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,186 ✭✭✭✭
    I liked your avatar and also the way you explained the things about butterflies. Thumbs up! @arzulita
  • DeniscorrectDeniscorrect Posts: 23 ✭✭
