in the roots…

ivonprefontaine:

Sometimes we look up when we should look down and perhaps scratch below the surface searching for what is hidden from sight. The branches provide the leaves which draw in the sun’s lights and make food, but the roots bring in the water, minerals, and other nutrients which combine with the photo-synthetic work done in the leaves. It is not alone things are done. It is in a holistic way we become whole and replenished.

Maybe You Are Searching Among The Branches,
For What Only Appears In The Roots…

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.

    Reading what you said about scratching below the surface reminded of an old quote:

    “A mother understands what a child does not say.”

    And now I will read further. :)
