being…in the silence

Silence and solitude are our friends. They form a healing space we occasionally need. Gandhi suggested we speak only when it improves the silence. That might fit with what Carried shared in this post.

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.

  3. There’s nothing like walking to give you that silence. At some points you become aware that you have been thinking and that you cannot remember any of what you thought.
