My First Day

Let me introduce myself to you!  My name is Susan Jones.  I live in Southeast Tennessee, in the great United States of America.  I am a mom to three beautiful grown-up girls, and live with a boxer, a pug, and a yorkie.  I am also a grandmother, and am looking forward to big hugs from this wonderful little girl!

I am starting this because I have a lot of things in my head and my heart that need to be shared.  There are days when I keep to myself, and days when I want to be in the middle of a crowd.  Today is a by myself day.  Once I left work, all I wanted to do is shut the door and think about the coming of spring! 

I am an amateur photographer, a writer, an artist, a musician - but most of all a dreamer! Yes, I know that everything is either black or white, but somewhere in between is the grey that makes all things possible. I never give up on a dream, but I have put many of them into a box to save for another day.

I find pleasure in nature and it's amazing changes.  Friends are the best thing you can give yourself, and enemies give you someone to talk about when you are upset..friends close and enemies closer?  Not so much, I'd just as soon keep the enemies away!

Yesterday in Tennessee was a beautiful day!  I took a drive and found both beauty and ugliness in the same location.  I chose to capture the beauty, and ignore the ugly.  I know spring will make it all right again.

The first picture was taken on part of the Cumberland Trail.  This trail winds through parts of Tennessee, and encompasses some hiking trails that were already established. Some new portions have been added, and more will be. More information is available on these hiking trails at  This link shows not only the topo maps and directions to the trailheads, but gives a comprehensive step by step to the miles and sights along the way.  BUCKET LIST  - to travel to at least one section a month for photography (in decent weather, as I hate the cold!) Hope you enjoy the photos, and I will leave you with this..
