Carpe Diem Haiku *Circle (provided by Lolly)*

I was preparing notes yesterday for the Eco-Ethics class and used the concept of tree rings as a way of telling a story. This lovely haiku popped up this morning with the same thought. In my journal, I wrote that the concept of “entanglement” from quantum physics might be a key to understanding what connects us in the virtual world. What ways do actions in one place influence seemingly unconnected people elsewhere?

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.

  1. I share this vast wondering? Especially across centuries, words of individuals touch, motivate and reignite lives. Like today is St. Francis of Assisi and his prayer (Make me an instrument of your peace) has certainly affected me. We do influence but impossible to see/know how? Enjoyed your haiku.

  2. Everything in my opinion have hidden threads of connection, though a connection is not that obvious in the quantum world it often becomes revealed in synchronicity.

  3. Thank you very much for reblogging.

  4. Your comments welcome for such beautiful composition.
