My wife asked me a question today, and I thought I'd pass it along for comment.

She wanted to know why so many of the members here (myself included) use pictures of ourselves (at least mine is of myself - I assume others are as well) as our avatars.

The only answer I could give her was that I don't care for my appearance now, and I think little me is cute.

Any comments?

At present: 1 step forward, 3 steps back.

For me its two things: first, its about representing, honoring, and remembering the little me that was abused, and secondly, puting a face to the stories I have. Hope this answered your question. \:\)

I posted my picture for much the same reasons as Andy. I found the picture of me after my mother passed and we were going through her things. I know it is tough to tell in the avatar but I looked very happy and my eyes were bright shiny and optomistic. That look was to change shortly.
