Susan Emmaline Pointer Bowen,
this is a picture of my grand mother's grand mother... i love this picture so much! i have not doubt that knowledge is power! the book in her lap, her confident posture and the serene look on her face, speaks to me! we have a lot of old pictures of family... the pictures of the other women of this time period are very different. they all look very broken and unhappy... not this one! she is my idol, i want to be so powerful some day!
