Ecstatic

Hi Everyone!

Yeah! It’s Friday!

Here’s some F.Y.I.:
Ecstatic has been used in our language since the late 16th century, and the noun 
ecstasy is even older, dating from the 1300s. Both derive from the Greek verb existanai (“to put out of place”), which was used in a Greek phrase meaning “to drive someone out of his or her mind.”  [It’s scary to read or hear what words use to mean eons ago!!]
In early use, ecstatic was sometimes linked to mystic trances, out-of-body experiences, and temporary madness. Today, however, it typically implies a state of enthusiastic excitement or intense happiness.

Thank goodness it now means enthusiastic, excitement, overwhelming, you feel like you are on cloud nine (9).

Have a great day! Hope

Retired in 2015, lived in Chicago, IL all my life. Love blogging and knitting. I'm sure people think my blogs are - hmm - "bonkers". I've read there are eight (8) type of writers. Closet writer, eternal writer, hestiant writer, innovative writer, inspired writer, literate writer, logical writer, and last but not least savvy writer. Still trying to figure out what I am. I like to use clip art or photos in my blog. Try to relate the clip art and/or photos to what I am writing. Eight (8) writers information found on greatstorybook.com Thank you for stopping by!
