Greatest Rewards – A Tanka

I wonder where trust vital and is the fabric of our relationships is. And, then I look around and see it is there; I just have to work harder at drawing it out. If I don’t, I destroy all that I treasure. Well said Dom.

Lifeโ€™s greatest rewards

Friendship, love, marriage, children

So easily lost

Succumbing to deadly sin

Destroys all that we treasure

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.

    Reminds me of the old saying (ZEN ?) of what a happy life or full life is: “Grandparents die, parents die, children die. That is the natural order of things.”
