Summer Lovin’

Summer Lovin’

ivonprefontaine:

Water, even in waterfalls, has a quieting and calming effect. I enjoy being near water for that reason. The Mark Twain quote summarizes how I end up feeling in that dream and even in the busiest moments alone.

“It was a soft, reposeful summer landscape, as lovely as a dream, and as lonesome as Sunday.”

About ivonprefontaine

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.

  3. I can remember when Sundays were indeed lonesome, but now they seem like any other day.

    • We traveled in New Brunswick recently. The people of New Brunswick opposed store opening on Sundays and, even today with some Sunday hours, they are quite limited in smaller communities. It was pressed for by the large corporate entities with no local roots.
