Today’s Quote

What one cannot see still exists. We only have to look in the right places with the right eyes.

Soul Gatherings

desert

What makes the desert beautiful…
is that somewhere it hides a well.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. It is only with the heart
    that one can see rightly;
    what is essential
    is invisible to the eye.

  2. If we were to describe a room during the day, would we include the empty spaces between objects. On a sheet of music we honour the pauses or we would hear noise.

    At night with darkness, how would our description of that room change?

    If a tree falls in the woods without a human present to hear it, does it make a sound?

    In numerous posts, Ivon, you have giving voice that the pauses are as important as the notes.

    • I am reading Alfonso Lingis now and he speaks about the murmurs and rumbles we try silence in the world. He suggests they speak to us and it is important to listen. It is where the notes resonate as they fall into silence and wait for the next note to be played.
