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.

Wow. That's beautiful, Beth. What an astonishing and lovely thing.

I felt the influence of this post today as I went hiking in northern PA, looking for things that seemed to be animated by the light of the miraculous. A lone white birch on a mountainside, in particular, reminded me of your story. http://www.flickr.com/photos/89056025@N00/307125568/

Woo, Beth. It's lovely and powerful. Brings tears to the eyes, the good tears.... Thanks for it.
