Memorandum of a telephone conversation
"I met her in the late 1970s, I believe.  I had been working at ROLLING STONE for a couple of years on and off.  I went every year at Christmas with my family to St Martin. One year I decided just to stay on in St Martin.  I used to work for Joe Armstrong, the publisher of ROLLING STONE before the magazine moved to New York.  I was 19 or something.  I then had an interim job working for Annie Leibovitz when the magazine was moving from SF to NY.  I was helping get her situated, and finding her an apartment.  Shortly after that I was an assistant to Jann Wenner's assistant, Iris Brown.  Those were wild and crazy days.  I abandoned my job to go down and live in St Martin.  I was living in a little shed in St Martin.  I had a little hammock.  I used to hitchhike around because I didn't drive.  I used to collect my mail at a boutique."
