I've had two tomorrows since I began to live with Yuko. My tomorrow and another tomorrow that is much more important than mine come every day. It's amazing.

From a novel, "And, The Baton Was Passed." These are the words of a man who became a father of high school student, Yuko by fate. Yuko lost her mother at her early age and grew up passed among adults who are not related by birth. Each parent gives attention to another important tomorrow. Thinking about it again, I find living for myself more difficult than expected because I cannot see what satisfies me.
