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.

Beth, you honor your mother greatly through this project. The love between you is very tangibly felt through this lyrical writing.



The poignancy here is piercing,probably all the moreso because I miss my mother. We're estranged. There's just so many times I can try to connect.
I fervently hope it happens moreso for you. (I'm here via MB's blogroll.)
Your blog looks intriguing. I shall return to drink more of your words.
(Congrads on your book! Human rights issues are important to me.)
