Beside the temple pond


I love haiku. There is a presence in the words because they are so carefully chosen and mix so well with the silence in spaces between.

I have been an educator for almost 20 years. Prior to that, I worked in private industry for 15 years, then returned to university to earn my education degree. For the past 11 years, I have been a co-creator of learning in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. A main theme in my learning there has been the roles of systems thinking, complexity theory, and organizational theory, and how they apply to education generally and the learning environment I share with students, parents, and colleagues.

  2. I think it is in the silence that views are hidden. Even my view is obscured and not fully revealed. It disappears in the silence, the depth of the pool and I try to express in the next word.

  3. We love anything Temple. We especially love this. The silence leaves us with our own thoughts. Just shows a few words has more impact than a page of meaningless nothings. Great find.
