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 tell myself how lucky I am to live in a place with four full seasons, and to be able to celebrate each one. (The highest heat and humidity are more draining to me than the cold.)

Beth, I love the last reminiscence brought on by your snowball. Snow is kid stuff, I think. Sometimes it seems to suggest that what has happened since childhood hardly matters.
