is brunch a carb?

Winnie the Pooh has wonderful wisdom. I do wonder if brunch is a carb? My phys ed background and hockey coaching leave me wondering.

I didn't have my glasses on....

lovely spot tucked away in the city

site of a

beautiful brunch

and

meeting of

b.a.d.a.s.s.

(books and drinks and samba society)

IMG_2184women (and a random piñata) of all ages and occupations

talking about books

and

life

and

sports

and

adventures

and

entertainment

and

true crime

and

politics

and

sharing many laughs

and

friendship

and

good food

and

meeting new and interesting people

 sharing the piñata head

and

in what seemed

much too short a time

everyone was off

in different directions

some

to see flashdance one more time

others

to watch sports

and some

continued the celebration elsewhere

after this wonderful beginning to the day.

About ivonprefontaine

In 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.
