Simplicity is beautiful. We find beauty in things that just are whether it is a sunset, a smile, or the kind word someone shares. Despite the simplicity involved, these are full of complexity. There is paradox in much of what we experience in life. But, it is that paradox of simplicity and complexity that rewards us in our living.

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.

Thank you for your kindness. It’s very meaningful to me.
You are welcome.
This is very true.
Simplicity and complexity are often married together in the world we sense.
Sounds like the start of another poetry theme to me! 😀
I thought the same thing as I read and wrote.
AHA!…see “SIMPLE AND COMPLEX–BOTH”.
