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'm enjoying this series tremendously, Beth. Thank you.

It's the family life I've always dreamed of, the extended family, traditions, ties and memories. But you don't miss out (and I suspect will go on to tell more of) the difficulties, frustrations and complexities, big and small; the pains of every family, inherent in character, temperament and changing times. It's such a rich story, so beautifully told, and the photos are a delicious bonus.

Thank you, Dale and Jean.

Yes, there is much more to tell, and I will, if I can summon the stamina! I promised myself I'd keep this up for a month but November is almost done. What do you think? I'm inclined to take a break of a week or so and then continue, but maybe not on quite such an intense pace.
