This is a great quote with an excellent story. The last line resonates and echoes the words of Zen masters such as Thich Nhat Hanh and Senryu Suzuki.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  2. Very Nice. To make mistakes is human, but the same mistake should never be repeated.
    Truth is divine, that is, Divinity lies in expressing truth. Hell must grow darker at its (Truth) frown.
