The Hermitary

Whether you like it or not, shedworking and homeworking tends to be a fairly solitary occupation. A fantastic site for those who regard a bit of peace and quiet as, on the whole, a good thing is The Hermitary which has a wide range of articles, book reviews and links on the subject of hermits and solitude. There's also an interesting blog, Hermit's Thatch.

    Firstly I’d like to congratulate Alex Johnson on such a first class website, I keep finding myself returning here as I’m sure others do as well. Not only do I build and sell retreats for clients I also work from one at my home and I must say the solitude is my favourite part in doing this. I have a chair specifically placed by a window and away from my desk and this is where I go at times for a break from work. In simply plonking myself here and gazing out the window I can feel my brain/body almost healing from the pressures of work. The downside from this working/lifestyle is of course you become a little withdrawn and can go ‘within yourself’. The secret in my opinion is to be aware of this and as with all things in life ‘balance’ is the key.
