Today's Stichomancy for Billy Joel

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Across The Plains by Robert Louis Stevenson:

Yet a little higher on the foundation, and we began to be affected by the bottom of the swell, running there like a strong breeze of wind. Or so I must suppose; for, safe in my cushion of air, I was conscious of no impact; only swayed idly like a weed, and was now borne helplessly abroad, and now swiftly - and yet with dream-like gentleness - impelled against my guide.
