Love is the Prize

I recently commissioned an update to my avatar. My original, created in 2021 by the talented Hala Sweilam, was inspired by my favorite Virtual Reality game “In Death Unchained”. 

During my first run, a 6ft knight charging at me with a

sword forced me to overcome deathly fear head on. 

Running through purgatory with a bow and arrow at roomscale is reminiscent of life as a Dreamer

Fear blocks my growth, but where I am is not my destiny.

My new avatar, commissioned this year and reimagined by Ghazal Naveed, no longer holds a defensive posture. Instead, my avatar holds a bow and violin in repose.      

She is different.

My new avatar doesn’t present life as a game. 

She reflects love is the prize.
