This post is about the future.

The future exists in those who believe in the power of their dreams. -Eleanor Roosevelt
Essentially: Our hopes and desires will be answered if we pay close attention to them. With ambition, we can shape our future.
 The future is called "perhaps," which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the important thing is not to allow that to scare you. -Tennessee Williams
In other words: Who the heck knows? It's not something to fear.
"Que Sera" by Wax Tailor, sampled from "Whatever Will Be, Will Be" sung by Doris Day
As for the future, just let it be. Live for today. Believe in the future. There's something coming, and when it does, we will greet it.

 We can fear it. We can pray for a better tomorrow. We can try to predict it. We can sit and let it wash over us like waves tickling our toes; we can sit and let our days slip by. We can plan, but when we do that, we risk disappointment and failure. Many men and women wiser than I have spoken profoundly about the future, its depth and its ambiguity. To me, the future seems much like a cake without a recipe: you put in the ingredients, the elements that will likely react. Then you add heat, work and effort. After accomplishing all this, you let it bake. You watch with fingers crossed and hope that your creation will rise to a delectable finish. If we're lucky, the future will be a beautiful pastry, a collaborative work of art, for all to enjoy.
