keep your fingers crossed

I go to plead my case to the Medici.

There is so much that depends on their decisions. If they consent to a patronage, so many doors may open. If they refuse, the doors stay shut. But the doors are already shut, so I lose nothing by my petition. Except the opportunity to pull out of this orbit -- to break out of the cycle I am in. No guarantees, just opportunities. I have sent along my letters of introductions, and wait for their counsel to speak to me.

I hope against hope: my mind soars while my stomach plummets.

    Good luck with Il Magnifico. And you might keep in mind one of my favorite Rudyard Kipling quotes,

    "He who begs in silence starves."

    You risk nothing to gain much. So where's the down side? Wink
