This I Believe Rhode Island: Seasons
No doubt you have noticed how our lives ebb and flow, much like the seasons. Both literally and figuratively we get to experience the wonder of stunningly beautiful spring days and the bitter assault delivered by the occasional winter blizzard. Such is life. Indeed, seasons seem to be able to teach us so much about coping with life's inevitable ups and downs, including its bittersweet moments. Consider the quote penned by the French Nobel existentialist Albert Camus: “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer." These are the sentiments echoed by Terry Ward.
For the last 20 years Terry Ward has enjoyed working as a college counseling director, currently at the Providence Country Day School. He is also a religious studies teacher and loves music of all kinds. Ward has sung with the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Tanglewood Festival Chorus for 22 years.
