mermaid lessons

The suggestions in the post i.e. cultivating beauty and joy, playing, filling your sails with dreams, and feeding your soul with what enchants you are worth meditating over each day. What do they mean in our living?

Sirena Tales

Feed your soul with what enchants you



Sculpture: Michael Buonaiuto

Rough seas will pass

~~Ebb~~~ and~~ flow~~~~


Cultivate beauty and joy

Dive deeply: ’tis where the richest treasures lie




Your heart is your true compass: listen


Fill your sails with your dreams


Venture forth on your life’s vast seas of possibility


Be intrepid in your quest

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. Dear Ivon, Methinks you are a mindreader or an angel (or both), in addition to being a very compassionate and generous soul. I was just sitting here at my computer, eager to write a post, and wondering whether I should bother. And then the reblog icon came on. Thank you more than I can say for your wonderful support, for showing up in my life when I need it–again and again and again. May your new year, including your graduate studies, enchant you. xoxo

  8. How I liked that first line: Feed your soul with what enchants you. We need to do that more often – on a daily basis. Then our soul will shine to brighten others’ pathways as well.
