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.

Wonderful, Beth! Merry Christmas to you and J. They're predicting a dusting of white here by morning.

It is charming, Beth. Reminds of something a dear friend sent me, a Christmas pageant told by children from St Paul's Church in New Zealand. https://www.youtube.com/embed/kWq60oyrHVQ?rel=0 I love the shepherds and star!

Joyous Christmas to you and J. I envy your snow.

Thanks, Leslee! Merry Christmas, and I hope you do get some snow - just enough to be pretty!

Joyous Christmas to you and Fred, too, Marja-Leena! I just realized that the ribbon-like thing below the star is its "tail!"

A very happy holiday to you!

I love that - "I can walk! I can walk!" Thank you for reminding me of Amahl; my favourite part was the Visitor who sang, "This is my box, this is my box, I never travel without my box." I wanted a box just like his. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Beth

ha!...I'd say it shows a lot of artistic promise! So much detail!

I love the drawing! Although I'm a bit worried that the big fox behind the crib is licking his chops as he looks at the infant Jesus ....

Happy Christmas, Beth! And thanks for your really interesting blog over the year.
