Reply Slosh. Slosh is a good word. It should be used more often. Reply Two years only? It feels more like infinity! But we’ve melted barriers in the compass and the sun dial, also words have turned superfluous on thought waves that break into or laze on shores. Do you know that the prized rabbits from you still fascinate readers on my blog? A mushroom panel for you awaits its time, too. There’s more of you than of me in who I think I am today, and that’s in two years only? time tattoos on shore before the tide how could infinity be unreal? Congratulations! Two years only?
