Here are a wonderful image, a beautiful poem, and a Rumi quote to enjoy. There are words that speak only in silence.

About ivonprefontaineIn 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.

love Rumi ❤
Thank you. His work is as meaningful today as it was when he wrote it, perhaps more so.
essential 😀 compose a happy day Ivan.
Thank you for the lovely thought.
Rumi is amazing!
More so today than ever.
words as nutrients
for the eyes and soul
Food for the soul.
If you know Rumi that voice is our true spirit, our soul, our inner guide.
There is a place in the mind, actually a side where no words or thoughts exist. No judgment, right or wrong, good or bad exists either.
This place has no knowledge of the past, no inkling of any future, it knows only this moment.
You have to sit intently repetitively to connect with this silence.
It is the road less traveled.
Rumi was a world class meditator, no?
He still is and his work is more profound today. It is a road less traveled.
Thank you so much for the reblog.
You are welcome Lisa and thank you.
Love this. I can’t add any words, only soak up the ones writen.
It is great to soak in words sometimes. They are liquid that way.
