Word Nerd: Apricity

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsy

apricity-definition-word-nerd-via-lawhimsyApricity is an exquisite word that derives from the Latin aprīcus (“warmed by the sun”). Apricity is a particularly apt word since yesterday marked Imbolc which is the middle of the Winter season. It’s also the time when the Groundhog makes his prediction and I know many feeling a sense of apricity hope for an early Spring. Apricity is the kiss of a promise, a note of wonder and warmth in the middle of the dark and cold, Nature’s way of saying that Spring is as eternal as hope and it will always arrive again.

I intend to use the heck out of apricity, especially in the coming days as Winter enters it’s final stages and life begins to creep back into the Earth.

Namaste ~ Ella
