What Fills Your World?

What Fills Your World?.

There was no re-blog capacity on the site so I went with pressing it. The Inuit song/poem is a great piece and speaks to the smallness of our troubles and the awareness we need to recognize the small gifts we overlook which make life so extraordinary.

The Swedish proverb speaks to the song as in sharing we find more joy and less sorrow. Someone and something is always present with us even when they are not there physically.

About ivonprefontaine

I am a retired educator who is currently completing a PhD. Prior to teaching, I worked in private industry for 15 years and returned to university to earn my education degree. For the last 17 years I taught, I was a teacher in a unique, progressive, alternative educational school of choice. Currently, I am engaged in a doctoral program at Gonzaga University in Spokane. My dissertation topic is how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects.

  1. Many thanks for sharing this Inuit song/poem and the proverb with your readers, Ivon. I dug deep into the bowels of the dashboard and enabled the re-blog setting, I think. Smiles!

  2. I was just reading an article in Sierra magazine about how humans have largely lost their night vision due to so rarely having occasion to use it. I think about that article now, as I wander outside to admire the billions of stars in the heavens. To miss out on the rhythms of nature, from sunrise to sunset and beyond into the night – is to miss the value of living on earth, in my opinion.
