Spa Time?

Sure, I like to go out--but sometimes I need to stay in for some Soul Care.
Emily Dickinson put it this way:


The soul that hath a Guest
doth seldom go abroad-
Diviner crowd at home
obliterate the need
and courtesy forbid
a host’s departure when
upon himself be visiting
The Emperor of Men.
  • Emily Dickinson, c. 1863
