This speaks to me. The parts of my life when I have been the happiest has been when I am on a Sabbatical, living my life in whatever way I want, being with "those I like."

I have perceiv’d that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them, or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a moment—what is this, then?
I do not ask any more delight—I swim in it, as in a sea.

I am getting ready to host another Couch Surfer...this time for a 3 week stay! It's a long time, considering how quickly fish and guests start to stink.

But it will be like having the roommate I never wanted, lol -- but it should be fun. Hopefully, lol!

He is a marathoner, so I imagine he'll be out running. And he's here to take that same certification class for teaching English as a Second Language that I took in 2014. It was 3 solid weekends plus homework, so I suspect he will be fairly busy. I was working at the time, so it was particularly tiring for me!
