About meI am beginning a vocation to a life of solitude and silence as a religious hermit; more accurately, an Anglican solitary. Episcopalian lay woman, in my mid-fifties, from the New York City area.
About my libraryRight now my reading is entirely geared toward my spiritual life. These books constitute a reading list about contemplative spirituality and eremitic life.
