GIP: Housewife's Lament

Meet my new icon. Image: isolated rock, waves. Words: from the lyrics of the song "The Housewife's Lament".

Anticipate seeing this icon on posts discussing housework, and the woes associated therewith, and also on just general household things. Also anticipate seeing this icon on posts involving feelings of isolation. I hope there aren't too many of those.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
