Oasis makes you think. I received a complimentary copy of the e-version of Oasis in exchange for an honest review. I plan on buying the paperback version because I really enjoyed it and prefer to read from a book.
The story is unsettling and hopeful at the same time. It is a lesson in how we treat each other and the earth right now and how things might turn out if we don’t change our ways. It includes a lot of terms like “quietude” and “oneness” that, if used properly in this day and age, could actually avoid some of the unsettling things that happen in this book. All the events surround the main character, Theo, who is certainly put through the ringer. Oasis is a story of confusion and discovery…death and birth…known and unknown. I look forward to reading it again.#Oasis
I’m definitely a hugger, but not always in the mood for it. I’m also not necessarily a hugger of people I’m meeting for the first time. That’s mainly because I don’t know if they are huggers. And if you hug me, don’t give me one of those half-assed, pat on the back, barely touch me, kind of hugs. That’s just wrong. If you’re gonna hug me, HUG ME!
What is your favorite topping on pizza?
Black olives. Not very exciting when you’re a vegetarian.
If you were the original designer of one existing corporate logo, which one would you select?
Hmmm…never really thought about this, but I would pick the Apple logo. I think the bite in the apple is pretty clever.
Complete this sentence: Where I can seek my solace is…
Yoga. That one was easy.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
What type of music relaxes you the most or do you prefer silence?
New Age/Zen music relaxes me the most. I have very vivid memories of listening to it all day every day for about two weeks before my wedding.
Show us a two of your favorites photographs? Explain why they are your favorite. If you are not a photographer, think of a two favorite scenes in your life and tell us about them.
What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
My favorite tradition is getting/giving pajamas on Christmas Eve. When my brothers got too old and “cool” to wear pajamas, they started getting underwear. Then it was called “boys’ briefs”, and that has continued on through the next generation. On Christmas Eve, after dinner, you will hear everyone chanting, “boys’ briefs, boys’ briefs, boys’ briefs!!!”
