Word of the Day

Word of the Day

ubiety (n)

The state of being in a particular place

"Despite that lapse, she was content, even rhapsodic, and as if her little heaven upon earth, this paragon of ubiety, were somehow not enough, inadequate to cause that happy welling of spirit, the rejoicing in her idyll...."
--Craig Bell, Lost in the Elysian Fields

My ubiety involves being at 40.748 latitude and -74.050 longitude. Can't say I'm rejoicing in my idyll, but there are worse places.
