creative practice: oasis
I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of oasis -- a place of renewal -- as a physical place, lately, in part because the folks over at the travel site Trazzler are holding a contest for writing about that idea. I’ve thought about places I might write about,and places I know I won’t. It’s also occurred to me along this track of thought that music sometimes arises from, and sometimes leads to, places of renewal in the physical world, and that music is often an oasis itself, whatever the place may be like where you hear it, or play it. I’d welcome your thoughts on any of that.
