Ooh that is a neat word. There's no way I'll ever remember how to
spell that! Pretty neat how you can get your keypad to do those i's also ;)
That word sounds sort of impulsive, a roundabout kind of wandering.
I think it would be so interesting to learn irish - it sounds oceany
to me, full of wave and woosh sort of noises and all the words sort of roll
around. Like the name Shaughnessy - to me that sounds like the noise a wave
makes when it rolls kind of far up the beach and sort of hisses and seethes
over the sand. And that's so cool.
Words are grand.
Ah-ha, I have a haiku quote for that too,
"New Year - the Basho-Tosei
a-buzz with haiku."
