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.

This is so funny. I was reading the first scentences of this post and thought about my friend Wim. Then I saw his name an shivers went down my spine. It's a small word, excuse me for the pun. Here's a picture of him when he visited me in Montréal and we ate one of those huge sandwiches at Santropol. The text is in Dutch, sorry.

Mare - how strange and wonderful, this web of ours! Please tell Wim hello - I sent him a note this morning anyway to tell him how much I enjoyed his photographs - and thanks for the picture link; I managed to figure out the gist of what the caption said!

oh dear. I read that first sentence as 'in my naturist days' and was almost too embarassed to read further lest there be a startling revelation

that's what comes of a repressed British upbringing!

me, I was (and still am) into fungi

Fantastic work by Wim, and essay by Chris! Thanks, Beth. (My first longer comment yesterday seems to have disappeared into the ether...)
