the feng shui of LJ

i think i've mentioned my opinion about the way feng shui works - not really by doing anything with energy, but by serving as a reminder of what we're trying to accomplish. i just saw a new icon that a friend of mine uploaded, and it made me wonder about what we're doing when we choose our usernames and icons. it seems like a way of choosing to reinforce certain aspects of our personalities, both for ourselves and for an audience. maybe our choice of audience is part of that, too. public post or friends-only? who's on that flist, anyway?

it would be interesting to be more conscious about those choices, now that i've had that thought...

I'm sure it's not surprising to you that I'm *very* conscious of the icons I pick and use. There aren't a lot of happy ones. There are thoughtful ones, angry ones, and warrior ones. Some of them also come from my fangirlishness (Love & Rockets, Trigun, Avatar, John Jude Palencar and Harry Dresden, when I get around to it!). I have plenty of goddesses.

My user name comes from a quote in a fantasy novel by Mercedes Lackey, and generally points up how I've felt like a rebel and loner most of my life, and a bitch, too! ;-> There's a reason I call my flist "My Pack".

Most of my posts are locked because of a psycho ex who is into voodoo -- I don't want him to know *anything* about my life or Hari.
