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.

Oh how lovely!

Sigh. What more could you ask for in life? May the blessing continue.

Dear, Beth. I'm so happy to know you the way I do, which is not YET in real life. Someday. Congratulations on your ten years of blogging and on your 30 years of what sounds to be a deeply loving, successful marriage. You live life very well, very well, indeed.

Thank you, Dale and Julia.

It's true, Jan. I feel incredibly fortunate. It's been work, but the best kind.

Thank you so much, Laura! Jonathan and I have worked hard on our marriage over the years...and we know how lucky we are to have each other. A risk, of course, too, when you are very close. I think our love for each other gives us a lot of love to share with other people, and even a responsibility to do that. Of course, we also have our not-so-enviable moments! I look forward to meeting you someday too!

Love you both. So long since we first met in Vermont, so soon till our next meeting!

Beth, congratulations on your ten years. To me, your blogs are an extension of the person I have always known and a pleasure to read.

Lovely, and his for you at his too - must get over there more often!

Beth, this is the 3rd time I'm trying to congratulate you on your 10 years of bloging. Actually, I was not going to try again not knowing what went wrong the first 2 times and now feeling more like I must write instead of spontaneous and from the heart. Thank you for digging deep and sharing the process. I started reading you last year. 'Clarity and Chaos' and your entire Holy Week written thoughs are lying printed on my desk. I needed to show proof of interesting and inspiring blog reading to be found to one of my friends. I usually start my day by visiting the cassandra pages and have now added Jonathan's blog as second read. All the best to both of you.

I think you both are made for each other. Wish you all the best !!!
