Winter Haiku in Black & White by Bette A. Stevens

It has been a few years since I snowshoed, but it brings being outside during an Alberta winter to life. It does make for a perfect day.

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.

  2. HI, Ivon. Thanks so much for reblogging my Snowshoe Haiku. I feel like an honored guest today. How we treasure those few shimmering days of sky and sun on our frosty fields. Enjoy your day! 🙂

  3. I had a teacher named Mr Ader in N. Hannover Elementary in NJ. He was the coolest man to ever live. I am sure he is passed by now but the lessons learned and the grace and dignity made him the best. The other was the late VP Codispotti. He was a mentor and had my back. These two teachers I remember and miss!!

    • We look back and find out afterwards that those who meant the most to us live on in our lives.

      • I was just thinking about Don, who I worked with in Weather and with the military and he died Dec. 20, 2014. He would always say, “I love you man”. I knew him for about 35 years and he was uniquely open-minded with a large personality.

        He figuratively went through hell. Alone and rather discarded by society, his horrors made him even more of an enigma.

        RIP Bro!!!

  4. A perfect day in black and white 🙂
