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
