Heading Home…Packed My Memories…Leaving Spruce and Fir for Pine…and that’s Fine!

Dear Reader:

Today on our way home we stop in Philly to change planes…say a prayer there are no thunder storms in late October so we can break the curse! 🙂 Home is calling…so good to get away…so good to return!

There will be lots of adventures and photos to share…but most importantly memories to treasure for the rest of my life. Maine is spectacular….what an amazing country we live in with such diversity in landscape and culture….we are blessed beyond measure.

Looking forward to seeing…. A huge cranberry hibiscus bloom on lanterns by the fence…with more lanterns in the back yard. My night garden calls me.




Memories of five little pumpkins growing up….my five hearts.






And Home…with porch lights on welcoming me back…letting everyone know…”The Witch is Back!”  🙂

So until tomorrow… *John O’Donohue

May you travel safely, arrive refreshed,
And live your time away to its fullest;
Return home more enriched, and free
To balance the gift of days which call you.

“Today is my favorite day”  Winnie the Pooh



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.”

      Scenic sighted and safe travels awaited Anne and me throughout the Maine Adventure….yet…isn’t it true…we always loved coming back home…and climbing in back in one’s bed.
