Does it seem that way to you? Well, it's remarkable to me that I have arrived. Where I am today, because I had that anticipated it. I made the decision based on things that happened to be along the way. And I just kept going, You know, no matter what happened in my life it did not did not deter berate from reaching the goal that I had set for myself. You write very movingly of your parents, even though you are very honest about the difficulties they had in their relationship, and also frankly, some of the difficulties You had with them. Your memory seems so sharp like I remember you writing about the delicious potatoes your mother would make and yes, at lunch and it just it just amazing to me that you could remember. It's always details. It is amazing, but they was they so impacted my life at the time. Uh, they they affected me in a way that I could not forget those memories and my sister and I sit down sometimes and salivate over them the potatoes and you said her Mac and she's had no equal No one No one and she made a chicken soup that will make you Licked a hair out of your nostrils. Hmm. So So you write about how you kind of fell into acting after a modeling career that just improbable, moderate wing career like you learned literally. Um, a zoo. We said in the typing pool of the Red Cross, and you'd kind of go to the department stores on the kind of the late, Great Lord, Take your lunch hour. That wasn't my favorite place, sadly, just closing its doors. When did you decide that acting? Was your calling? What was the thing that made you say? This is what I have to do. It happened. We could. I learned that I could speak. Through other people. I was very shy child. I was an observer. I would sit And observe and listen and watch people's actions in order to understand what they were. Well, I wanted to know what planted them just say and do things that they did. I sucked my figures for 12 years. I never spoke. Was a silencer, but I was a great observer. Remember, you're writing about the effect. That's a role like sounder had on people where you played Rebecca and I think many people might know the story. Poor Paul Winfield played against you as the Nathan and you played Rebecca and it's It's a story of kind of a loving black couple. Basically, just trying to live against that almost exactly right. Yes, And what amazing was you said that some of the reactions that people got when, like, for example, television writers, saying that they didn't realize that black Children called there Parents, Dad and, Mom, can you imagine that? Understand motion for sounder and after I finished after the film was completed, this journalist said. That he discovered a bit of bigotry and himself. But he realized that this black boy, which should buy first son, Kevin Hooks called his father Daddy. On and when I asked why, he said, That's what my son calls May and I'm not. I tell you, Uh, I was so started to be a few minutes to catch my breath in order. To question What is this man thought? That we were human. You know why Pat my son call his black father Daddy as his sons. Called him and it was at that time that I decided I could not afford the luxury of just big fractures. There were certain issues I have to adjust. And I thought I would use like a rare as why flat floor and you know we can't let you go without talking about Miles Davis. Oh, Yeah, well, you can't because she was part of my life. What do you think you learned from that? I mean, you write about the fact that you all were like the it couple at the time.
