11:59

11:59 is magical to me. You are as close as you’ll ever be to tomorrow, and you can count down the seconds until the day you will never live again ends. And just for one moment, one you will never fully realize, as the clock makes the transition between 11:59 pm and 12:00 am, you are not in any kind of day at all but in between, and then you have made the transition between todays, from one today to the next. The day is out before you, fresh and unspoiled. Most people sleep through this moment, but whenever I’m up late at night I try to watch the transition of numbers on my digital clock. And I feel like that tiny unnamed gap in between the night moving out and the day moving in- that’s the tomorrow part.
