The Young Boy and the Sea

Fall Has Fallen!

Dear Reader:

Remember how I told you I was welcomed from the entrance to Honey’s mountain home to every space around it- with birthday decorations-let me show you!

Flying High

Birthday memories for a lifetime! Today Jake is celebrating his birthday with one surprise after another! School lets out early so he is going fishing and crabbing with his granddaddy … only to return to a family surprise party! His first ever! Happiness is…

Wonder and Curiosity

There was one scene on the way to Trust this past Tuesday that has stood out in my memory. It was the first time the sun burst through the fog and drizzle.

The sun hit one part of a mountain where one patch of yellow -turned -leaves on the trees shone like a hidden diamond! For me it symbolized hope … by now I suspect more of the mountain has transformed into the beautiful fall foliage we dream about each fall season!


Donna Rae sent me a beautiful Jacquie Lawson e-card-it ended with a forgotten phrase I love and will write down to have near me!

To the world you just might be one person; but to one person you just might be the world!

This evening my grown children are taking me out to dinner-it is a most special day for me -not for my birthday -but because we can all complete sentences and thoughts ( without interruptions) 🤣 and reveal changes, dreams, and new aspirations! I treasure the time together!

So until tomorrow… To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the sky.

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.”
