A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: A desire to be away from people; a love of solitude.
From Greek apo- (away) + -anthropy (human). Earliest documented use: 1753.
“While misanthropy is a prejudice, apanthropy is merely a preference. It’s a taste for being alone; a penchant for privacy.”
Tom Albrighton; One for Joy; ABC Business Communications; 2023.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:Inspiration does not come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly and all the time, though we must regularly and every day give it a little chance to start flowing, prime it with a little solitude and idleness. -Brenda Ueland, journalist, editor, and writer (24 Oct 1891-1985)
