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. Though I do not think of you as a "gawker" but as a crucial observer, familiar with the "before" and therefore more attuned to the "after." The last photo says so much about nature.

Just to note: I didn't write this post, it's by my friend G., who isn't a gawker either!

Gorgeous photos and thoughts from your friend. I'm glad you shared these with us. I'm reminded of Jane Hirshfield's poem (although I have a sneaking suspicion that I have posted this exact poem here to you before? Maybe it just reminds me of you and your way of seeing!) "Sonoma Fire:"

Large moon the deep orange of embers.
Also the scent.
The griefs of others--beautiful, at a distance.
