Happiness alighting,,,,needs cultivating everyday to appear…

This is a simple message with a lovely image. The image suggests a bridging between where we are in life and a lack of visibility where we are going. What brings us happiness moment to moment will alight in ways we can never anticipate. Being present and aware helps us realize that happiness.

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.

  1. I love going into the unknown. Of course, I get to do that every day, since we never really know what’s going to happen. But the great unknown of a forest, a new trail. Just wonderful.

  2. A perfect quote by Proust to frame the photo. I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness lately as we have neighbors who recently moved in next door and who are so horrible that we are losing enjoyment and happiness in the home we’ve lived in for 30 years. To us, happiness is being able to sleep all night without being rudely awakened by a street racing muffler at 4:30 a.m. Silence is happiness.
