Today's Stichomancy for Edward Norton

The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from Buttered Side Down by Edna Ferber:

Slatersville, Ohio," said Ivy, with dignity. "He regards baseball as his profession, and he cannot do anything that would affect his pitching arm."

Pa Keller put on the tremolo stop and brought a misty look into his eyes.

"Ivy, you'll do one last thing for your old father, won't you?"
