Icon Transitions

One of my self-indulgences is paying for extra icons here on LJ. Between that and the loyalty icons I get for each year of paid membership, I have quite a collection.

The problem is that when I look at that collection these days I feel uncomfortable. Most of these were added three or more years ago, when my life looked and felt very different. There are several I haven't used in more than a year. It's time to do some thinning and replacement.

The thing is that I have a weird desire to maintain the integrity of the old posts where these icons remain appropriate -- even though even I don't go back to look at most of them anymore.

Just typing that puts the situation more in context.

This is just another opportunity for me to release the outgrown, the no-longer-useful.

Except that the word "just" is almost never appropriate in such situations. It minimizes the real emotional weight of such a shedding, dishonors both the meaning the things once held and the significance of the growth that the release makes necessary.
