Act I: in which the present and the past are all mixed-up....and it's difficult to decide or know where reality is......
Act II: in which the past haunts us with its nostalgic beauty.... and calls to us from the depths of inner spaces of heart and mind.... but the past is all shadow and dream - insubstantial.....
and we can't hold on to it because the present is too pressing.....
Act III: in which we realize that only the present is really real....because it is all we have.... but in the end it too is shadow and dream.... and disappears..... into what?...
