The closer we get to October, the more I think Penderecki is entirely appropriate, so I’ll keep him up as my avatar for awhile. I’ve been digging his music quite a bit lately.

New year, new (old) avatar!

I reverted to my original avatar* and signature line.

The avatar is neutral enough so that nobody can guess from it what music I like. The signature line, though, gives me away as an unabashed romantic. :D

I get aromas of Mozart and Schubert on the palette somehow  ::)  ;D

My avatar, on the contrary, is indicative of my music preference that inclines to the 20th century.  My user moniker indicates something quite unrelated to music.  The latter I use on several other forums as well.

While my current avatar is rather explicit, my usual one is even more so. The signature line provides a hint as well...

My avatar is a visual representation of 4'33.  You just have to vibe with the ambiance of the negative space. 0:)

Hm.

A fox. Outside. Wearing a warm scarf. Reading a book, drinking coffee. Smoking a pipe.

Pretty standard.

The pipe, a scarf and a good pint of beer instead of coffee, foxandpeng, you remind me of Maigret, a very French character, however.  ;)

My avatar, I mentioned it in my presentation, is Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-George, a violinist, composer and also a fencer born in Guadeloupe.

I stand in good company 😌

I probably posted on this thread a few years ago when I first joined.

If not - my avatar is the White Rose of York, Rosa Alba, because I live in Yorkshire and love it with all my heart.
After all, it is nicknamed 'God's Own County'! :)

It’s good to love the area you live in. I’m very fond of hilly and wooded countryside such as the Pennines so plenty of Yorkshire appeals. We lived in Bradford for a year and found plenty of good places to go for walks with the dogs.

I have been to Leeds a lot but not to Bradford. But I believe that Bradford has a wonderful cultural life with lots of groups doing things and putting on plays or concerts. We used to have dogs but at present want the freedom to move about a bit. I keep hankering though. What sort of dogs do you have?
