Icon Meme from [livejournal.com profile] aizome. These are the icons an explanation was asked for, if you would like me to ask you about some of your more interesting icons please comment and I'll do that.

This came from a photo, I believe, on National Geographic. He's quite literally glowing with an inner light isn't he? Even though the little guy borrowed his lamp from a strand of twinkle lights. I like this photo on many different levels, there is the physicality of it which appeals to me, the redness of his body glowing through, the little frog himself (my family are all big fans of frogs, lizards, toads, so forth and so on) and then there is the metaphorical part of finding and showing ones inner light.

It just about works on every level of me I can find and hence one of my favorite icons.

My dark lady pic, this is from a work of art I ran across on the net and is suppose to be a vampire in the 1800's. Originally I snagged this and made an icon for a writing journal I had and have since moved it over here because she's a perfect indicator of when I'm in that sort of mood, of gloom and twilight, and dark things in dark places. I don't view this as a bad thing in and of itself, just another piece of what makes a whole.

This is a postcard from the Post Secret LJ feed. This rather bluntly sums up how I feel about life in general and people in general. We have so little time and so much of it is sucked away by the mundane necessities of life. It's maddening and makes me feel like I'm drowning in a thick nothing. So I resist and this is the words of that resistance.

Another Post Secret card that I turned into an Icon. Closely tied to the other one in thoughts and meaning. I feel this way, quite a lot, and I couldn't have come up with a more perfect expression of that terrible feeling and what one would do to ease it. Circling back round to the first one of the frog, sometimes our inner light needs a boost, or indeed a hole to ripped in to let the light in. I crave feeling alive and shudder, moan and generally piss about when I don't feel that way, I start struggling to find anyway to get back to where I feel full of light and alive.
