Guest Quarters Archives


Guest Quarters of the Edge of PropinquityThe phrase "guest quarters" brings to mind the cordial hospitality of gentler times when family and friends would visit not just for a weekend but for weeks on end. Such visits were well prepared for and looked to with great anticipation. Guests were given their own dwelling space within the home. It allowed them both closeness to the host family and the privacy that guests and hosts needed to maintain that cordiality.

Unless, of course, there are hidden peepholes or things lurking within secret passageways. 

One can never tell what trouble curious guests will find themselves in if they look too close and see too much. Prying eyes and hands have led more than one person down a not-so-primrose path much to their dismay. Also, the unwary host may invite more than he bargains for when he ushers in someone from the cold. Long lost family or strangers in unfortunate circumstances are occasionally revealed as wolves in sheep's clothing with gleaming eyes trained on the hand that had just fed them. Travelers get lost, people go missing and homes become unnaturally empty.

But, of course, such a thing would never happen here.

On the cardinal months of the year, guests drop by for a brief visit to delight, intrigue and terrify. Then, they are gone. Just as it should be. No one wants a guest to overstay their welcome. Even such honored guests as these.
