My dear,

The poor man has it all doesn’t he? He doesn’t have to lie, please anyone he doesn’t want to, or run a business he hates. But he lacks money.

I’d like to live as a poor man, with lots of money.

I’d like that freedom to move as I please, that freedom to be with my family at any moments notice, and that freedom to stare at the sunset and sunrise with no obligation in the world… While making sure I don’t go hungry of course.

What an ideal. I think I’ll work on making it so.

Falsely yours,
Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso
