Tomorrow is something that is expected by almost everyone.
We believe in tomorrow as we believe in today,
thinking that as today went perfectly well or even ordinarily,
tomorrow will be the same.
Tomorrow, predictably, will come as today did:
slowly, gently, regularly.

But tomorrow is not predictable; tomorrow is wild and fickle,
because we do not know tomorrow.
Tomorrow may or may not come, and we will never know that
until we reach the edge of today:
for some, the tomorrow will roll in as the tide,
for others, today is the last tomorrow they will ever spend.

So how do we invest today:
preparing to live by the inertia of tomorrow,
or living now as if tomorrow was not a given thing?
