Bob Dylan departing from “The Castle,” a house in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles which became a haven for artists and musicians traveling to the west coast in the mid-1960s.

“I’d just moved into The Castle with Tom. Bob rented a room for two weeks just before the release of Blonde On Blonde and before his European tour started. He got the suite on the second floor and was writing songs. I was the housekeeper and chief cook and bottle washer and late evenings I would give him massages. He drank a lot of chocolate milk shakes so I took it upon myself to feed him healthy dinners. We went out shopping to Fred Segal’s on Sunset Boulevard. That is where he bought his polka dot long sleeved shirt. — it’s still there. He was writing all the time. I photographed his desk with his typewriter. He didn’t crumble papers up and throw them in the trash or I would’ve kept them! He would type a song and then write over it and add things. If you look at the books that show his writings, you can see the notations. People always ask me if he let me shoot pictures.  He didn’t stop me but a couple times he’d make faces at me. He had a way of looking at me that was intimidating.”
