From Chaos, Hope

It was a long day. I just started thumbing through some right brain scribbling and this popped out at me.

From chaos, hope–

Faith springs from community,

Companions bring wisdom,

Symphonic voices–

Harmony of diversity.

Bind together

Mine eloquent questions;

Provides raw materials;

And life polishes–

Rare beauty under pressure.

Hold each other gently

Be unsure together

Be companions.

Break bread

Be safe in this place.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. Love ‘be unsure together’…Life is messy, and we need to give ourselves this permission, to enjoy humanity in the fold of the community, who also struggles. Nice one, Ivon.

  6. Dear Ivon,
    I have been blessed by your writing but I just needed to stop by today and let you know how much. The quiet coming together and breaking bread in thanksgiving and being at peace with who we are and all of life. That about sums up how we all should live together. In safety. In harmony. Thank you. Sharon
