jyuukoi: soylent @ IJ (my own work) (Germania - I thought it was harvest)
Friday, January 8th, 2010 03:56 am
I just fell in love with a pairing.

I was making a Germania icon and while I was doing it, the Tori Amos song "Toast" came on, and then the last part made me listen, the lyrics somehow just clicked. It's a sad interpertation, considering that Germania and Rome sort of faded from being, their sons came into their own and they had to step aside and let 'them' do the growing.

"I thought I'd see again,
You say you might do.. maybe in a carving;
In a cathedral, somewhere in Barcelona."


So then I had to rewind it and listen to it.

I think that the best icons are made that way, when you are just making them and then the perfect song syncs up with whatever it is that you're making. For me it's a highly personal and almost transcendant expirience.
