Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I have the feeling that my sensibilities could not have been challenged by a more worthy opponent!
:)
I am looking forward to seeing more of your private collection!

Oh, my, please don't think of me as an opponent! I'm kind of amused to read through my collection, actually, because it represents an earlier version of me. MY challenge is to start adding to it again.

A worthy opponent! In the highest sense - the very zen sense of the word!
I know what you mean - many things that caught my attention in the past could never catch it now - and sometimes vice versa.

OK, I will accept that compliment with grace! A bow to you.

For a minute there I thought you were quoting me but then realised there's the Big Augustine out there. Funny how taking on an alias gives a feeling of ownership. But like you and whiskey river, I'm not competing!

Well, I'm relieved I'm not the only one who had my Augustines mixed up. It took me a moment to realise Beth's post was referring to the less godly of the two.

Heh heh heh heh.
