Wallpaper Meme

Gakked from rei_c, because she's gifted me with some amazing music this month with her daily music meme.

♦ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
♦ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
♦ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.

No, you don't really have to!
This feels almost disturbingly personal, but here you go:


I've had this same wallpaper for 18 years. I found the piece of artwork online at that time, immediately set it as my desktop background, and was unable to find it again to discover the artist's name. The coyote padding through a dreamscape speaks to me in a unique way. I moved to an entirely icon-free desktop 6 months ago when I got a widescreen monitor. My main window only covered the center of the screen and the clutter of icons visible around the edges both distracted and distressed me, so I moved all my programs and shortcuts onto my taskbar.

Yes, my brain is a strange place.

That is a fantastic piece of artwork. I love your default icon; it's become a part of how I think of you.

And I hear you about the desktop clutter. It's vexatious. I live with it, for the convenience... but I don't really like it. *grumbles*

I've always liked your icon. The work in its whole here is very nifty!

I kind of wonder what's inside that cave Brother Coyote's looking into....
