#Oasis

It makes you think.

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.

#Oasis

 

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

 

Sharing My World

Sharing my world…

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

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?

Thankful for time with family. Looking forward to Holidays in Hemming on Saturday.

Heart Beat

The heart begins its dance in a very private place. It needs not be told how.

The beat is steady and the music is strong.

When it emerges to be of this world, it is forced to learn about pain.

But the beat is still steady and the music is strong.

People ask things of it and question its worth. It sends its love out but often comes up short.

Yet the beat is steady and the music is strong.

When the heart knows it is safe and offers love to another,

Then, that heart feels safe and offers love to yet another.

Then three hearts beat steady and the music is strong.

The dance goes on and on and before you know it,

Everyone’s heart feels safe and every heart feels love.

The beat is steady.

The music is strong.

The dance is forever beautiful.

These are perfect questions for me today. I’m not in the mood for anything deep.

 

Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?share your world

Over, for sure. Under is just wrong. I can’t even!

Purple, of course.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time? share your world

Yes. Better than I used to be.

 

 

 

Rather:  Would you accept $5,000 to shave your head or die it bright lime green and continue your normal activities while not explaining the reason for your haircut or color?

I would rather shave my head for $5,000. I’ve always wanted to do it anyway. Hair is annoying.share your world

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.

My siblings and me, really having fun, late 80’s. We all have such different personalities.

Looks like it was staged, but it wasn’t. True family photograph.

 

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!!!”

If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself?  Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 50?

Breathe. Forget about guys. Be you. Breathe.share your world
