Episode 12 – Susan

Susan B. Steen (Molly’s co-host, mother-in-law, and friend)

The first thing Susan wants people to know about her is that she loves people. A humanist at the core, she loves meeting people, knowing people, and values relationships. She explores creativity through her writing and photography and love of rearranging furniture. A daughter, a wife, a mother, a mother-in-law,, a sister, and a friend,she is happiest when she is laughing and crying with her family, many of them chosen. Laughing, hiking, photographing, and podcasting with Molly encompass her favorite things with one of her favorite people.

You can read Susan’s writing in the Mainstreet Media paper in towns throughout middle Tennessee, where she writes about life and people and the joys and struggles we need to be talking about more often with each other. You can see some of her photography in 52Frames, an international community of photographers she is proud to help lead. Though she’s only been there seven years, the project has been going strong for eleven, and she thinks everyone should spend at least one “52 weeks” exploring their creative side through the lens of the camera,phone cameras work great!

Writing a book, speaking to groups, and learning other languages are on her list of things to do in the coming years, but she’ll be pretty happy hanging out with the people she loves and working to strengthen her bones and brain.
