When you are the host, what gift or experience do you hope to give to your guests?

The host is concerned with order, time, preparation, taste, quality and comfort. The gift that the host brings is one of ease of association. While the host may be hurried, it is the host requirement that the guest feel a sense of flow and ease.

What is the experience of being a guest like?

For guest the question is about accepting the condition of being guest. It is the guest condition to be comforted. To be fed without plan etc….

How is it different from that of a host?
