The longest Beauty

Dear Reader:

Tommy sent me this link a friend sent him and it is so beautiful it took my breath you discover when you click it on.

It is a video showing the snow falling ever so beautifully on the relics of the original entrance to the famous Pine Forest Inn….now President’s Circle in Summerville.

This snow will also go down as the longest lasting one … at least in my memory. The lake outside John and Mandy’s home is still frozen. It has become a popular place to throw snowballs. Even little Jakie has gotten into it.

We tell each other ‘ Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder’ but with this rare snow one would be hard pressed not to see how exquisite it is and how fragile. It is the fragility of it all that creates the ever- lasting memory!

The sun was just starting to set when I took this picture of the old oak tree with the hanging Spanish moss dangling with ice and frost. For the beauty of the world.

It appears big brother Rutledge has the magic touch getting his little sissy Eloise to sleep.

Day 4 and you see why roads here are still scary!

So until tomorrow … the snow is slowly but steadily leaving- take time to memorize the sheer moments of beauty.

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
