Today's Stichomancy for James Gandolfini

The first excerpt represents the element of Air. It speaks of mental influences and the process of thought, and is drawn from Crito by Plato:

I told him I was slow of making friends.

"I will take the word back," said he. "But there is such a thing as FAIR GUDE S'EN AND FAIR GUDE DAY, Mr. David.
