In the photograph above, the puppy is enjoying a stroll in the warmth of the sun while the snow-covered ground is catching a glimpse of sunlight.

Apricity

For a non-English speaking person like me…It’s all Greek.

How many Britons are familiar with this word is another question I have

Apricity belongs to that set of words which are rarely used in the English language and nobody knows why such words are not used any more neither one knows who invented them.

English language teachers must be familiar with this word.

I don’t know what it means and I had to depend on Google.

Definition– Apricity is the warmth of the Sun in the winter.

The word is said to have entered the English language in 1623.

“I just love any place that I can sit in the sun and feel the warmth of the sun’s rays, and feel the connection to the planet, really tapping into how small I am and really how insignificant I am in comparison to the universe.”

Dean Potter

Who does not love the warmth of the Sun during winter?

The very presence of the Sun is like a big warm hug.

Those who live in colder climates know what I mean.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
