Word of the Day: “úht-cearu”––the worries that gather as one lies sleepless before dawn (Old English; lit. “early-morning care”).
A feeling bleakly recognisable across centuries; a word that echoes in our current moment.
Cf Swedish “vargtimmen”/”wolf-time”.
(Pron. “oot-chair-oo”) (via @RobGMacfarlane)
