a success unexpected in common hours…

Thoreau had it right. We need to keep moving towards what we think makes a better world and a better life. Those two things are not mutually exclusive, but require a meditative stance the busyness of the world does not always allow. So, we must seize it even when the busyness is oppressive.

“…if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” – Henry David Thoreau

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. For me, 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, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
