|yrs truly,1976, Sierra Nevadas [pic by Jay Hosler]|
I woke to the word ravasure
a vasture assured
a raptor avatar
vicissitudes of lava
Apparently there's a World of Warcraft non-combat pet called ravaseur; I'm quite certain that's not where my ravasure stemmed from. Turns out that the French rêvasseur means daydreamer, & yes, I knew the rêve root.
