Dance me to the end of love

This is my favourite Leonard Cohen song. I was not aware of the story behind it and the Auschwitz orchestra. That speaks to a deep sadness and a celebration of living while we can. It reminds me of Viktor Frankl’s work about the meaning of life.

How my heart speaks

Leonard Cohen said he was moved to write this when he learned of the orchestra in Auschwitz.

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.
