It is a figment of my imagination.
For thousands of years we have had "history", which has primarily
been "his-story". More recently a different story has been uncovered
- "her-story". So, my claim is that a hermitage has, for hundreds of
years, been mis-defined as a place primarily for men. So, updating
definitions to be more accurate to the times, I have identified my
place as a "him-itage." Therefore, I see myself, not as a "hermit"
but as a "him-it."
