Water, even in waterfalls, has a quieting and calming effect. I enjoy being near water for that reason. The Mark Twain quote summarizes how I end up feeling in that dream and even in the busiest moments alone.
The World Is A Book...
“It was a soft, reposeful summer landscape, as lovely as a dream, and as lonesome as Sunday.”
Have a relaxing summer! 🙂

In keeping with bell hooks and Noam Chomsky, I consider myself a public and dissident intellectual. Part of my work is to move beyond (transcend) institutional dogmas that bind me to defend freedom, raising my voice to be heard on behalf of those who seek equity and justice in all their forms.
I completed my PhD in Philosophy of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA. My dissertation and research was how teachers experience becoming teachers and their role as leaders.
I focus on leading, communicating, and innovating in organizations. This includes mindfuful servant-leadership, World Cafe events, Appreciative Inquiry, and expressing one's self through creativity. I offer retreats, workshops, and presentations that can be tailored to your organzations specific needs.
I published peer reviewed articles about schools as learning organizations, currere as an ethical pursuit, and hope as an essential element of adult eductaion. I published three poems and am currently preparing my poetry to publish as an anthology of poetry.
I present on mindful leadership, servant leadership, schools as learning organizations, how teachers experience becoming teachers, assessement, and critical thinking. I facilitate mindfulness, hospitality retreats. and World Cafe Events using Appreciative Inquiry.
I am writing and researching about various forms of leadership, how teachers inform and form their identity as a particular teacher, schools as learning organizations, hope and its anticipatory relationship with the future, and hope as an essential element in learning.
Beautiful images of a nature that is flowing and growing.
Yes, they are beautiful.
Thank you so much for the reblogging, Ivon! That was a pleasant surprise 🙂
You are welcome Amy. I love Mark Twain’s honesty and humour and your pictures are incredible.
I can remember when Sundays were indeed lonesome, but now they seem like any other day.
We traveled in New Brunswick recently. The people of New Brunswick opposed store opening on Sundays and, even today with some Sunday hours, they are quite limited in smaller communities. It was pressed for by the large corporate entities with no local roots.
