Meet a person I am so lucky to have in my life - Betty. For me, Betty is so often "that friend" who is there and can be called upon at a moments notice for support, a kind intelligent ear, and excellent advice. We all should be so lucky to have "that friend." The one who is ALWAYS there for us. In fact - THAT FRIEND is actually usually there for everyone. Those individuals are often the primary support for a whole network of people. They are strong, stable, loving, giving of all they have in the service to all others. Sometimes even at the expense of themselves. Betty is that person. She is someone who will meet a total stranger, befriend them immediately and offer them sage helpful wisdom on how to navigate NYC bus system. We all LOVE Betty. She is the absolute best friend any one would be lucky to have.
I took this picture of Bet on a beautiful day last summer. I noticed the light shining through her wide brimmed hat casting beautiful patterns of light on her face. I have been meaning to share this image here and write about her as a way of honoring all of the giving she does.
I write about things on this blog that inspire me. Things that I see in everyday moments of everyday life that I had the privilege to capture. It is a small creative mission and a space for sharing. Betty and her husband Dave are setting out on a creative mission of their own to create a little new person just like them who will come into the world and continue their work of daily good.
They could use a bit of support in their creative enterprise ... Help them to make another truly amazing person. The world will be all the better for it.
