"The Oracle" is about being receptive to words of wisdom at unexpected times, often from people that we don't know and from people that we might not think would be able to affect us in profound ways. Such is the case with me and my experience with Jason, who modeled for this piece. Although he is much younger than I am, and less experienced in some ways, getting to know him deeply affected me. Throughout our conversations, I was surprised at how much wisdom he had to offer me, and because of this I developed a genuine respect for him, and we've built a lasting friendship.
