Word of the Day -- Eremite

The word of the day has been on hiatus while I worked on the website.  Now that things are settling down, I'm hoping to start writing them again...  TB

Eremite: : hermit : especially a religious recluse.  The word come from the Latin eremita, from Greek eremia (desert), from eremos (solitary).  It can be used in general terms to mean any type of hermit who willfully removes himself from everyday life, but it is most widely used to mean someone who is seeking seclusion from the outside world for both spiritual and scholary religious reasons.
