At 3AM EDT, this question appeared in my sleep:
               What if my neighborhood became an oasis?
Then another question tumbled in:
               What if my heart were an oasis?
And another:
               What if my mind became an oasis…welcomed “unknown visitors” – ideas not considered before?
In my city last Friday, high-school groups created an oasis. The young people invited us to a gathering that they called not a demonstration or protest but a rally . The streets of New Haven became a place of safe, nourishing, refreshing refuge for 5,000+ people of various colors, various ages, various backgrounds.
We had a chance to be close to the anguish and hope of families.

Old people listened to the life stories and visions of young ones.

Because they had been invited by the young organizers, the chief of police and the mayor listened and sang with us as we gathered in front of the police station.
What if… I created an oasis in me… a safe place to be safe with my fears and hopes, my hunger, my gifts….

What if … I really listened to my own heart and the heart of the world around me… now?
 Thank you for walking on the journey with me. Feel free to tell me about your story.
Oasis Sanity Tip

Today set aside some time – 8 minutes and 46 seconds if you dare, less time if that’s better for you – to listen with your heart to these questions:

Who am I?

What am I here for – now?
