Who believes in Santa and .... the oasis. I know, I'm weird.
Today I was at the supermarket with my 4 years-old boy and he wanted a toy, usually I say no, but you know sometimes they need to be pleased, so I bought it.
At the till, the cashier asked my son: what would Santa say, that you bought this toy?
And I answered: why, we don't believe in Santa.
I think I shocked her, because she stared at me and didn't know what to say.
I tried to kid with her saying that he would be relieved from his job, but still, she was appalled.
Yesterday I was chatting with my dad and he was saying that despite the world being like a desert (in a metaphorical sense) he always returns to his oasis ( a place of peace, comfort, and serenity, both in a physical and emotional way ).
I answered that I built my oasis around me and I carry it wherever I go.
Later, while I was taking a shower ( TMI? ) I had an intuition...if everyone commits to cultivate his own oasis, there would be no desert at all, and the world would be better.
It makes sense, doesn't it?
