From My Life


John Ashbery came over to interview me for Life Magazine yesterday. Walked over, in fact, even though walking nowadays is something of a chore for him. We met at my car, which was parked on the north side of Bank Street between Washington and West Streets. It was raining, and I had been trying, as always, and without success, not to see the raindrops as thousands and thousands of little tears sliding down the windshield as we spoke. I was a bit tired from the photo shoot Philippe Halsman had just put me through. He had me jumping up and down for hours--well, maybe not hours, but you know what I mean. When John asked his first question it had almost stopped raining.
