In Flight: Blogging Northern Michigan

I posted this poem by Mary Oliver several days ago, but her poetry is always so inspiring. The world goes on and we have a place in the family of things.

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. Ivon, many thanks for the reblog! I really enjoy Mary Oliver’s poetry as well (I’m on another “Oliver kick” right now). Anyway, I really appreciate your spreading the word about her and her terrific poetry!

  2. Ivon, This breathtaking poem inspired me to choreograph a piece years ago that I had forgotten about (not sure how that happened :/). Thank you so much for the beautiful reminder–timely and timeless. xo
