in subject's hand, across center below image [photographically printed on sheet in black]: It feels so good to be in my private world. The world / out there is scary. There are so many problems. / I guess my life is a bit isolated - but in my world / there are problems too. / Poorer peoples[sic] lives are less complicated. They do not / have to worry about running such a big house, the boat / needing constant repairs or the servants wearing spotless / white uniforms. / Our lives are paralleled however when it comes to the pursuance of health, happiness and family fullfilment[sic]. / From wherever one stands ones problems always / see important. / Mitzi Cohen; on verso, signed by artist, bottom right corner in graphite: Jim Goldberg 1981
