My whiteboard at the office has a new use: the repository of some obscure words of the day. Today's word, for no good reason, is eleemosynary: of, giving, or receiving alms; having to do with charity. I think tomorrow's word will be pleroma: fullness, plenitude (esp., in Gnostic theology, the spiritual world as the abode of God and of the totality of divine powers and emanations). Not sure how long I'll keep this up, but it's fun while it lasts....
