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.

Oh, wow! This is really beautiful, Beth.

It feels kind of Group of Seven-y, to me....

Thanks so much, Hannah! Those colors are very much what the Group of Seven was dealing with...I like their work a lot.

Oh, yes! The box elder across the road just had that first rogue branch go bright yellow - this morning I was thinking that you could feel the season starting to turn. The painting captures the feeling exactly. :)

Hi Kat! Well...there's the confirmation. I don't know if it's good news or bad news, but up here, too, I feel the balance has just tipped toward fall. What I noticed this week was how it's definitely getting dark earlier.

All your work is more dramatic, post-Iceland. Like that change!

vermont is my home.

thank you for these beautiful views of it.

Actually, Marly, I think I did this one before Iceland...but that's the direction I wanted to go.

Flask, thank you for telling me. Vermont is a good home to have.

I visited various blogs except the audio quality for audio songs present at this web page is truly wonderful.

This is stunning, Beth. I haven't been to Vermont in years and this brought it all back to me.

Well, then--where you wanted to go was an arrow pointing to Iceland! (Which reminds me of what I have not been reading... Shall try and catch up this week.)
