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.

Beautiful -- images and words both!

Great pictures. And was the dark-haired woman J's mother? She looks very young!

Neat'n'sweet, Beth!

Thanks, Rachel, Natalie, Dick. And no, my mother-in-law is the white-haired woman in the beret in the foreground. The dark-haired woman owned the shop, and her own mother -- a small, white-haired Indian woman, always in a sari -- was often there -- another reason my mother-in-law enjoyed stopping in.

And did you go home with those earrings? Lovely that you have fine memories of your mother-in-law...
