This is my thousand and first post since starting to blog. If only ten percent of my scrawlings prove meaningful in future, I can be content.
On an entirely different note, I thought this was really interesting:
1. A suspension of hostilities by mutual agreement; armistice; cease-fire.
2. A temporary respite from something unpleasant.
Respelling of trewes, plural of Middle English trewe (agreement, pledge), from Old English treow (belief, trust). Ultimately from the Indo-European root deru-/dreu- (to be firm), which is also the source of truth, trust, betroth, tree, endure, and druid. Earliest documented use: around 1330.
Love the language!
