Back in my room to collect my sword and cloak, I decided I had just enough time to try a fast tarot reading. Of course urgency and apprehension make the worst possible state of mind to obtain a clear augury, so I should not have been surprised that the results seemed very mixed at first glance. Some cards made sense, others did not. I tucked them away in my memory and the deck under my pillow, then . . . it was time to go.
A faint wedge of light showed under the door. As Venice sinks slowly into the mud of the lagoon, its doors and windows - even its walls - forswear right angles in favor of ideas of their own.
Wealthy Venetian men provide little education for their daughters and keep their wives housebound - some don't get out more than two or three times a year. They have no friends, no recreations. Then the men wonder why their womenfolk are so dull! They patronize courtesans at least as much for entertainment as for sex, probably more.
