Y for ABC Wednesday




Every now and then, I think I've played this meme too long. Too hard. Every now and then...when the difficult letters at the end of the alphabet arrive!

However, I stumbled across this old word and while not totally enamored with the sound of it, I do yearn for the potential of experiencing the energy it defines.

Yare: Reflects a sense of mental quickness felt from time to time - the readiness of facing challenges. And at this moment, I love the idea of Yare!

Yes, I do!

A most worthy word, even if it is a little clumsy.

Oh, I remember that. I don't remember the word, but I remember when I had a sense of mental quickness. Let me see, it was 1970-something, or maybe 1980-something.
Good word. Excellent post. I love the little boy making the Y shape, and the panda popping in and out.

I definitely need some Yare this morning. It seems to be in short supply.
Very cute animation too. Thanks for sharing a word I wasn't aware of before.

Yare to you.. I like learning new/old words. I'm reading a mystery novel, the copyright is 1936, but in a revised version, and I have to get out the dictionary to see what some of the words mean.

I would love some yare. Great word for the letter Y. Happy New Year!

Hildred and Charles said...

I could use more Yare in my life

Paula Scott said...

I rarely get a yare...if I do get a yare. Well, it would be rare.

Autumn Belle said...

Oh Wow, I leant a new word today!

Reader Wil said...

I like this word too, though I don't know how to pronounce it. Perhaps like "flare"?
I agree with you that the last letters of the alphabeth are the most difficult. Always a challenge to find proper words.

Yare: Wonder what it would look like as a photograph or a fractal? I guess the animation from the kids took yare!

Cheryl said...

Great choice for Y. And now I have another word in my Scrabble arsenal. Whee!

Nanka said...

Nearly got my eyes entangled :D A very different and an unusual word too.

Gattina said...

I think, just after Yuletide, we could all do with some Yare - great word.

Kavita said...

Oh, you certainly possess this yare, my friend!! :)
May you face every challenge with all the yare in the world!!
Love and Best Regards for the new year!
