Thanks for your responses about being at home. I agree with Beatriz that eventually I'd want to get out and travel because I do love to travel. I just like coming home again. As far as missing people, yes, I would want to communicate with the people I love; they could come visit me, right? I think I'm a bit of an introvert because I don't seem to need to be around people as much as others may. My mother-in-law used to state, "I'm my own best company." At this point in my life, my desire to be alone might have something to do with being in a room with twenty kindergarteners for three hours every morning.
On a trip to England in 2004, I came across this plaque on a wall by the front door of a friary in Canterbury. I love it. This photo hangs by the front door in my home. Pax et Bonum. This is what I wish for you all, at home or out and about.
PAX ET BONUM--PEACE AND GOOD
