Solstice Ice Queen:
This was made by a friend of mine who makes glorious graphics. This in is animated and twinkles. she made it for me for winter solstice one year and like all of the sigs she's made for me I immediately fell in love with it. I fell into Delphi forums in 2001 (third place online where I'd been interacting with people, first being irc and then a women's board that later became iVillage) and I met Kim then in one (or maybe two?) of the Pagan forums before wandering over to The Poll Vault (TPV) where she was/is host. Her ident was Songseeker at the time and now she goes by SSHost. The eyes, the color, the absolute Ice of it is enthralling.
This one is Selina:
Many moons ago on an LJ far far away someone tossed up links to icons up for grabs and I grabbed a TON of them. This is one of my favourites. It is movement and energy and magic and dance. It is freedom and flying in the parrot and I love the colors. And it makes Penda LOL whenever I use it.
This one is named simply Oldlady160:
It is from the same grab as Selina. I used this one almost exclusively with the posts I made about my mum, her brain tumour, her subsequent struggles with cancer, her recovery, the finding of it up and down her spine, her demise and her death. I haven't had the heart to use it for anything else. It seemed so right as the icon for all of that ~ the lack of color, the feeling of it - bereft and alone, the concerned facial expression, the light ... when I chose it to save I had no clue of course how very well it would suit me later.
One of my favourites. I have to be really ticked off to bring out Bob. Bob deserves to die for what he did ~ stealing my cookies. Most often used when someone on the internet pisses me off because that type of angst is about as important as stolen cookies and the overblown reaction the equivalent of death. (But stealing my cookies is a very very Bad Thing, just so you know.) I swiped this icon from musiquephan on LJ I don't know where she got it from.
From the aforementioned icon grab. It is summer to me - bright, hot summer. It is also the new things risen and growing after the fires of destruction, the first lush summer acre of green after a years before forest fire. It the frenzy of near fruition on a creative project. It is that one final hanging moment right before orgasm. Isn't is awesome?
