Sloan is an early Irish patronym which means expedition, invasion, warrior.

Ex: 'Former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan dies at 78'

Sloan is also a name that has been used by parents who are considering baby names for boys.

I read it all somewhere.

It also could have been the name of the otter.

It's for sure an anagram of salon. You can certainly find others.




NB The first thing you see when you stand in the corridor, facing the entrance, might be a flute.

Then maybe, you can also hear the sound of a piano being tuned behind some door.

Some things are gone now, by my hands I thought.

Still a smell of cologne.
