The eyes are useless, when the heart is blind.

I recently found this blog. I am not sure why I missed it for so long, because it is well followed. The messages are simple and to the point like this one about opening our hearts which allows our eyes to see differently. The message is profound and similar to Proust’s quote about seeing with new eyes as we find new shores.

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.
