"Nothing is as far away, as one minute ago" I saw this quote once on a hotel room's wall, many years ago. Two years later I found out it's full meaning from my own bitter experience.
The woman is waiting for someone...smoking..drinking...impatiently
There is a mystery in the painting that my audience had to solve...The mirror on the wall shows the same room with the same cigarette and ashtray. But she is not there...it doesn't show her body, because it shows the future one minute from now. The woman is done waiting...Who doesn't see the future is the one who doesn't see the present.
