  1. Oh, I think being an acosmist would be really sad. I'd love to be a paralian, though!

  2. Hi Mary Ann,

    I knew aureate, but both of the other words are knew to me and great words to know.

    I would love to be a paralian and as we are going to Cornwall for a short holiday in a few weeks time, I shall hopefully remember it and try using it in a few conversations whilst I am there.

    Whilst I don't believe in God, I am not sure that I could deny the existence of the universe, after all it is out there, visible to all surely!

    Great words this week, thanks for sharing.

    Yvonne
