Have you ever really stopped to smell the Tennessee Smoky Mountains?

To my right is a BBQ grill. It’s one of those big professional char grillers that has a smoker and built in thermometer. I’d assume you can throw at least 20 burgers on it at once. As my mom would say, “I could feed an army with that thing.�? Is there anyones mom who hasnt uttered that phraseOn my left and around the corner is a large hot tub. I can hear the water calling my name. But, what I have before me is even better.

It’s about dusk… 8:22 pm and there is still a lot of light…

I have moved myself from a rocking chair to the edge of the balcony. And I’m now sitting on the guard ledge with my feet hanging over. Below me there is about a 20-25 foot drop through some thick trees and brush. I don’t see any roses down there. In fact, it’s difficult to even see the ground. What I do see is that I am surrounded by the most beautiful scenery and lush green forest. It did rain here earlier today.

I’m plotting against the keyboard… One leg is hanging over into the mountain forest and the other is clinging to the spoils of a Tennessee Great Smoky Mountain cabin. Most everything is still and you cant help to notice the many birds a chirping. I am not a bird watcher nor do I ever care or stop to intentionally listen to them, but today is different. Today I get to smell the roses. I get to stop and reflect on all that is beautiful around me…even the clouds look like they are peacefully lounging over the mountains.

If you have never been to the Smoky Mountains or stayed in a Tennessee Smoky Mountain Cabin rental, I would assure you that you would have the most peaceful time. Looking out in the distance, I can see four or five different mountains- One behind the other. What can be better than this? A sackful of cash? There are days where I would trade for either, but today, I think I have been given the better of the two. Call it crazy, but if you were here, you may just be saying the same.

One last item of note: Every time I am in the mountains, the skyline is different, the mountains in the distance are new shade of green, and the surroundings are that of thought provoking topics. One of these days I will just spill my guts, but before I take a spill off this ledge, I will go for now.
