Things to Remember About an Oasis #2

They are afraid of the dark. Seriously, have you ever tried to find one at night? A lot of people attribute this to lack of vision, but it's been theorized that they tend to congregate near one another for comfort during the nighttime hours.

If you happen to find one during the day, and it has not run away from you (Because you followed the instructions in the previous oasis status) you should probably light a fire before going to sleep. This will insure your new found oasis will remain at your side for the duration of the night. This may also result in what we like to call "Islanding", where you might wake up on a small island, surrounded on all sides by the oasis. If this happens, do not be alarmed. It is simply the oasis' way of hugging you for providing it with a light source during the frightening night.

Things to Remember About an Oasis #1

I know It's been a very VERY long time sense I've posted on this blog. I'll try to be more regular! ANYWAY! Welcome to my self declared Oasis Awareness Month! To help get into the spirit of this month, here are a few things you might want to remember about oasis, which might help you if you're lost in the desert!

Things to remember about an Oasis #1: They are very skitish and afraid of loud noises and screaming, flailing people. If you encounter one in the desert, don't run at it. Approach calmly at an angle, speaking softly to it if you think about it. Otherwise the Oasis is liable to run away, and or vanish.

...some have erroneously called this phenomenon a mirage.
