The film originated as a series of small "Bagatelles" that comprised fragments of film from my earliest years in New York and my home neighborhood in Queens, which was a railroad hub, through the years to the present. The divisions disappeared into a single flow. I retain the title and see it as a reflection of its use in classical music.
So, the film is alternately a suite of moments as well as a lifetime in an instant.
