Terri King Speaks

Digging For Gold

by on Feb.18, 2008, under Uncategorized

This weekend I began a project that will end with a book about my paternal grandmother, Stella Walker King.  Just one fact-finding session into my journey I got rewarded with stories I had never planned on. I recorded her voice as she spoke and have listened intently to the conversation between 2 generations many times already. 

Is there someone in your life you admire and respect?  Or maybe you know someone who’s just really interesting to you.  May I encourage you today to take the time to call them up or sit down to a little talk about who they are, where they’re from, and what they’ve lived through. 

Perserving the heritage of the human spirit is a worthy cause. You just might get the same emotional rewards I got yesterday.  I hope so.

Your new job: Journalist.  If you uncover a great story, post a comment and share it with us.  I can’t wait to see what kind of treasures you dig up.

    Make a point to visit and record your family and others. Their voices will be cherished and when they are gone those tangible memories will forever be remembered.
