Life. Be There at Ten 'Til.: A Collection of Homegrown Wisdom
Be accountable. Be responsible. Be on time. Or better yet, get there at ten 'til. You'll be all the wiser-and all the more content!
This funny, insightful, life-affirming collection uses everyday moments-from the tobacco fields of South Carolina to red-carpet premieres in Hollywood-to demonstrate the value of showing up early, holding yourself accountable, welcoming change, nourishing others, and being fully present and engaged with life.
A native South Carolinian, R. Dean Johnson delivers homegrown wisdom that's unassuming, gracious, and utterly charming. His uplifting, down-home life lessons include:Stop hiding behind answering machines, caller ID, and front-door peepholes: be there, and welcome the intrusion. "Honesty is a good policy. Sometimes it's just not the best one." "There's nothing like a good casserole to say, 'In time, you'll heal. But in the meantime, this will make you feel somewhate better.'"
"As a fellow Husky-wearing southerner, I really relate to Dean's anecdotes. This book is filled with lessons to never forget."-Ryan Seacrest, Host of American Idol
"Life. Be There at Ten 'Til is as refreshing as a glass of cold buttermilk sipped on the screened porch."-Celia Rivenbark, Author of Bless Your Heart, Tramp and We're Just Like You, Only Prettier
