Swavering

Postby Perry » Thu Sep 20, 2007 4:42 pm

This is a verb that was coined by a colleague's son about twenty years ago when he was around 6 or 7.

It seems to express so much more than just swaying or wavering.
"Time is nature's way of keeping everything from happening all at once. Lately it hasn't been working."
