|Spring in the water*

The heron was back in the river this morning.
And the students are gone from the pool. They'll be back after the Easter vacation, but for the moment it is lovely and quiet.
This afternoon it rained.
*It doesn't seem possible to use a strike-through in the title line. Is this a Thing?
Getting to see a heron is a kind of blessing.
(I don't think you can do italics in the title line either.... no formatting, except that it does seem to permit you do use the username coding for other LJ people)
You can - or at least I can, in my style - use italics. I've just checked, and my italics are still there (phew!).
Yes, a day when we see the heron always feel well begun.
Wow, I feel in an alternate universe indeed. Are there italics in your title? (If there aren't italics in this title but are in the title to another entry, can you point me to it? I want to see if I see them....)
Oh, sorry - no italics here, but I use them in book posts (like this one
). Yes, do tell me if you can see them!
I do! I wonder if I *can* make italics, then... I feel certain I've tried and been unable, so maybe it is just a matter of my journal's style. But I did change the style once; I wonder if I'm still unable....
I shall scrutinise your header lines from now on!
Your post is poetic today, which makes me wonder what deep metaphor the comment about the strike-through is.
Neither deep metaphor nor, by your standards, bad pun - I wanted to say 'spring in the air', and strike out air to talk about water instead.
Now that you mention puns, I'm thinking about springs, coiled in the water. A Spring spring full of springs, in fact...
You see? I couldn't compete with you...
Not when my brain is full of melted playdough, anyhow.
the majestic heron in the quiet rain by the river.. it all sounds so peaceful
yes, and poetic!
Ah, but if it's poetic you must treat the whole thing as poetic: you can't skip the bit about the swimming pool, even though that feels more prosaic...
(Of course, you can if you want to, but it feels like cheating!)
you are such a purist, my dear..
i like that in a woman
I could manage to miss Boston, if it has stopped snowing. How're you doing?
Heh. I heard that news item, and was surprised, because I thought letting tea stand too long brought out the tanni. I like mine strong, so I brew it longer than most - but I only use teabags, so it doesn't count.
Of course, if I bought my tea at TeaLuxe, it'd be different...
