When the twilight years
of a man's life approach, he
escapes from the harsh reali-
ties of the present; by living
more and more in the past.
As his faculties weaken he
seeks refuge in retrospection,
attempting to regain the il-
lusions of iis lost youth,
and to hide from himself the
inevitable decay which he
faces, and the oblivion into
which he must pass.
That, exactly, is what is
the matter with me.
A chance word, a face seen
on.the street, a strain of mu-
sic; each open a door into
my past. Sometimes into a
gay r6om; bright with happy
memories, -sometimes in to a
charnel' house, filled with
the. skeletons of my dead
dreams and hopes.
