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.

Another lovely immersion in the country... I especially like that first mysterious photograph. And now I need to find some linden tea--never heard of it before!

This is wonderful.

Oh, beautiful, Beth. I'm so glad you managed to find some things in the weekend which were restorative. <3

(And I am envious of the food! All of those cheeses, and Quebec lamb...)

This is wonderful, Beth. There are some aspects of winter that I can really appreciate! Gorgeous first photo. And I love that black squirrel! I do find it challenging to get the balance of social time and alone time right, and it's certainly harder when lacking sufficient sleep - everything seems insurmountable then. Glad you enjoyed the weekend - sounds like it was restorative.

Wonderful holiday! I'm reminded of early years in cold places and cross-country skiing in woods that look a lot like the ones in your photos. Glad yours was so fulfilling - yummy cheeses, good friends and interesting wild life, restorative time to sleep and sit by a fire at night and being out in snowy yet sunny woods.

What a great weekend. I'm very envious--especially of the early morning by yourself in the dark by the fire, curled up in warm fleece. A world away.

That first picture is a WOW. Lovely.
