In the secret parts of Fortune?

While Hamlet is pretty directly referencing Fortune’s lady parts, I think there are likely many other secret parts of Fortune. She is always veiled. You will never really know your future. You can guess at it, receive hints but Fortune is always obscured, always behind a curtain, under a table, inside a card deck, inscribed in a palm, you can’t ever really see her. Those that reveal bits of her truth tend to veil themselves also. They drape bits of fabric over everything and themselves, secret themselves away, in hushed, curtained rooms. Fortune won’t appear under fluorescents or under the eye of a microscope. She needs her secrets.
