Back in the day, as they say, she made words. Some of the words, some of the time found themselves printed in one rag or another. Every now and again, the words printed in said rag (or another) brought out some kindly attention.
The picture is a depiction of one of those times. She doesn't remember if the interveiw was because of art or words. It may have quite possibly been both.
No one remembers. No one made note, or the note is long, long gone.
What she said to the woman holding the microphone was she enjoyed producing whatever; art or words or both. Said art or words or both represented life.
No, she doesn't really remember the interview but the best guess is, yes...fun. life. brief. fleeting.
*she: Deborah being interviewed because she did arty stuff that some folks liked and made mention, at times, honorably.
