This is a beautiful and melancholy piece, and, as Attwood played, New York's western horizon, broadly visible from the windows of the dance studio where the party was being held, seemed to hear it. A great pink sun sank majestically into the river. Recuerdos means "memories," and Ratmansky, staring into his wineglass, may have had memories of his own. The world, however interconnected now, is still a collection of different places, and a man can be in only one of them at a time.
