What I can tell you is that I blew the interview with University of Southern Mississippi's fine art professor, published photographer, journalist, world traveler Betty Press. What I will write here is that she was kind and patient and generous and understanding.
And gentle. She was gentle and soft spoken and I don't know how long we sat but eventually I felt like I was getting in the way of a woman the world needed.
We do. The world, we need more of her.
What I should say is that Betty Press wrote a book called I Am Because We Are.
Today I am grateful for the assignments I am given and the people I meet.
