My place last night. And they would be glad to have me stay for a while.


In this upscale town on the bay She commented to me as I drove by a week ago. And we had a nice brief chat. Towards the end she pointed to her house across the road. , we have a guest Cottage come stay in it. Turns out, She's slightly crazy that way. . The soul in us is crazy.
Yesterday afternoon I arrived for the night. She and her husband and I, well, I found it a absolutely wonderful exhilarating evening over a pasta dinner.
Stay longer. They reiterated it.
I recounted how I finally understand why Mother Teresa would never eat. Any place but at one of her orders. Even if she had been talking at a banquet, for example.
It is a largely fun, stimulating struggle, to keep the soul in charge. But the head and the flesh are relentless. Given the slightest opening, the slightest encouragement, they begin stealing attention. And I do not prefer it when they have attention.

As I departed our dinner, she said, now I hope you don't do a Mother Teresa and sleep on the floor. I had already mention that was likely. It is so odd, but the thought of spoiling all those sheets and creating all that work. Is so distasteful to me. It was a very pleasant vacation on the floor to have plenty of room to sprawl. , a solid floor, a safe quiet space, in such a beautiful area. With such nice friends..

Yes, a great temptation for the head and especially the body in this case. Very nice accommodations. If you get the chance and feel so inclined, please express Mike and Mary's thanks to them for their welcome, hospitality and kindness (goodness) to you.
