thoavala'u [ˌθo.avaˈla.u] adv. very slowly

In contrast to:
Lao Kou wrote:mömöngga'u [ˌmømøŋˈga.u] adv. at a snail's pace, very slowly
mömöngga'u: you may have to wrestle the revolver out of the speaker's mouth. This is waiting at the DMV, watching a cricket match, traffic to Cape Cod on a Labor Day weekend, a Clintonian speech.
thoavala'u: the speaker is zen. This is movement in a Noh drama, building anticipation between Advent and Christmas, the changing of the seasons. This catatonically blissful perception of time is actually hardwired into certain verbs of the language, but it's nice to have another word in the lexical change purse which embraces the concept.
