1. Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on yesterday’s entry! I’ve got a doctor’s appointment this morning, followed by a voice lesson. After that, I’ll spend time responding to each of you.

    • Have you ever been to an oasis? If not, next time you’re in SoCal, you should consider going. It’s an amazing place…one that you have to see up-close to really appreciate.

    • I think so, too! The desert has its own ecological beauty, and you have to accept it on its terms. Deadly, but drop-dead gorgeous in its own way…that’s the desert I’ve come to love and appreciate.

    • Ah, I’m so glad you felt its warmth! That’s one of the cool things about an oasis: It’s cooler than the surrounding desert, but it’s still warmer than most other parts of the world. It’s an entire ecosystem, all on its own. 🙂

    • One could definitely do that, if only in a spiritual sense. That’s the thing that draws me again and again to “my” oasis: the sense that I’m entering a magical, ephemeral world. The rest of the world falls away when I enter Nature’s cathedral.
