Sometimes I’ll correct V on his etiquette.
Please.

Serviettes.
The “proper life”.

And often he’ll say to me, “it’s harder to unlearn than to learn”.

Is almost the pursuit of adult.

To be nimble, flexible, adaptive, subversive.

And for Picasso, it was just that.
Spent his life learning to paint like a child again.
