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.

I read the Heraclitian Fire, and realized I was going to need a little help with that one. Found

which I will get to later. I've no doubt you'll do a fine job with it. I may try to get the feed but I seldom have success with those things.

It took me three times through before I understood what was going on. I read some online commentaries too. Some of the line breaks are real breaks but many continue - it was only through reading it aloud that I finally made sense of it, and how one might read it. There's a version on YouTube but it wasn't really helpful; maybe I'll make a recording and put it up. I'm going to read it with a friend tomorrow and get her input, before the service and broadcast actually happen. And there are tongue-twisters. I'm a little nervous!
