When we're together, the years fall away. 

Isn't that what matters?

To have someone who can remember with you.

Message from Jeremy:

A good read and a privilege to have enjoyed and benefited from that original vision,  ...we are once again under a blanket of snow.  All the best, Jeremy.
PS  Here is a life changing poem I learned from a wonderful Dutch woman who spent the war in Auschwitz. Corrie Ten Boom.  You can google her.


Between gleams of hope and clouds of doubt

My feelings come and go.

My best estate is tossed about,

By ceaseless ebb and flow.

No mood, nor thought, nor feeling

Remain constant for a day.

But Thou Oh Lord, Thou changeth  not,

Thou art the same always.


Thy mighty strength I make my own,

My heart with peace is blest.

I loose my grip, and then come down

Darkness and clouds unrest.

Let me know more my comfort

From my frail hold of  Thee.

But in this alone rejoice with awe

                           Thy mighty hold of me.

the blanket of snow...

See Norman's memory of John Corlette at myAiglon.com 

Welcome to a web page created by several students who knew John Corlette in the 1960s and 1970s.  

The materials on this site were collected by opening the email at JohnCorlette@gmail.com (materials sent to this address by other Aiglonites) and from various books, such as the pale blue Meditations book published in 1989, commemorating the 40th anniversary of the school.

You are encouraged to send your suggestions and comments to johncorlette@gmail.com and to add your thoughts to the facebook group called Three Things About Aiglon.  You can find that page at   http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/group.php?gid=43110069748&ref=ts

Subject: {Aiglon College alumni group} Aiglon College Rule Book (1964-1967)
If you are interested, I have just scanned a hardcopy of the Aiglon College Rule Book and put it up for you to view/download. I was at Aiglon from 1964-1967, so I don't know what the rule book might have looked like before/after then.

If you forward the link to anyone, they too will be able to use it to view/download the document: 
Aiglon College Rule Book (1964-1967).pdf
(So you don't need to forward the actual 5MB document and fill up their mailboxes.)

NOTE about the Wikipedia site  (Info provided by Iain Barraclough)
Wednesday, February 23, 2011, 8:29:18 PM
A comprehensive Index of Corlette and Aiglon-related links is available towards the bottom of the Google knol for Aiglon College (click on link to view).
Please note that, due to the Wikipedia entry for Aiglon College having been subjected to vandalism and haphazard editing changes by anonymous people and the Wikipedia editors over a prolonged period,
I have given up trying to maintain it (after spending a considerable number of hours bringing it up to date and correcting it). The most reliable independent, current and comprehensive version of the Wikipedia entry and of the above Index (and which are not subject to vandalism), are being maintained in that knol.
Note that there is a separate Google knol for John C. Corlette (click on link to view).

* If you know of any changes or new links to add to the Index, then leave your comments/notes as replies to this post.
* Consider contributing more by requesting that you become an author for maintaining/updating either or both of the Aiglon or Corlette knols.  (Thank you.)
