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'm right there with you

Ugh! We were expected that on Monday in Boston but it went out to sea, thankfully. Stay warm - and colorful!

The contrast is so great! Friends of ours who live in Vancouver spend five months a year in San Miguel de Allende, which is a bit too ex-pat-ish for me, but it is a delightful place.

"I'll take it." LOL

When I looked out the window this morning, anticipated the post you would write! The weather will break, the tender green will cover the mountain.

I have a French girlfriend who advises me to buy pungent coloured sweaters when I find them, in fall. By February, when you want them, the stores are full of summmer things. (I'm in aqua.)

Until you have endured a summer in Florida... where the temperatures they show on the weather map are taken on enormous poles hundreds of feet above the surface of the steamy earth... don't commit to preferring one extreme over the other. They are simply both extremes! Summer in Florida is as painful as winter here. People hide indoors as much, and then rush off to the mountains of North Carolina in desperation towards the end of August because they just can't stand it any longer. But I do regret giving up the colour red for Lent. I think I have a yellow sweater someplace...xxx

Oh how I love being lazy and inferior. Actually, I'm in Portland and so kind of inbetween. So perhaps we here have some character and some laziness. So be it.
