These are symbols that many people can read.

Without a word said, there's understanding.

I'm posting this week about
writing symbolically,
(metaphors, weather, similes, etc.)
But first I need your help.

I have a cool little app on my Mac computer so that I can type some symbols. But I always wonder if they show up the way I want them to on your computer. In the comments section could you tell me which of the following six symbols you see (or what you see instead?) And tell me if you have a Mac or a PC.

☂ This is an umbrella

★ This is a star

♥ This is a heart

♫ These are two musical notes ♫

☺ This is a smiley face

❀ This is a flower

Tell me if my cute little symbols show up.
(They mean I care about you!)

I was able to see all six symbols, and they were what you said they were.
By the way, I'm still loving the new look of your blog.

I could see them all as well. I'm on a PC. (So is my mom, even though she left that out in her comment above.)

I look forward to your posts each day. Keep up the good work!

Your little pictures worked fine on my PC. The symbols that I do not understand are the fabric care symbols on clothing tags.

I'm a PC and they all show up to me, though the flower looks more like a fat guy on my screen. So maybe that means you have seven symbol possibilities?

I'm on a Mac and I see what you want me to see...I think anyway.

I have a PC and I was able to see all six symbols. As you know, I always look forward to your posts, symbolic or not!

I have a rather old (in computer years) PC and I can only see the heart, musical notes and smiley face.

On my PC I can see what you said I should see.

I am on a PC with Windows XP and I can see all of the symbols.

I'm on a not-so-old PC and can only see the heart, musical notes and smiley face. Who knows? Maybe its my web browser.
