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.

A great saying - "if you don't have any worries, invent one." I'll start using it.

It sounds as if you were very fond of the man. I had a father-in-law of whom I was very fond and blogged about him, too. He died 20 years ago last weekend:

Great remembrance. Bet you miss him. Aren't you working on a book about him? I used to love those entries you'd make talking about him, the food he loved, his memories.

Ah, and have a great trip!
