I received this photo with the inscription on the back “To Philip With a smile to my guiding host Samia” Now here was a woman who knew her place in the world. She understood the value of just being. If someone drew attention to me, I would look down at my shoes and say “Oh shucks”. I learned a lot from that woman, on what a smile can give you entrée to. The last I heard she was in Austin Texas with a husband and a daughter and had got her PHD in woman studies. Good for her.
