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.

Having fun - must get serious or it can't all be play - must put some effort into it/ or or or
Will you let us know, Beth?

​Oh, I don't know! I'm fooling around and enjoying it, trying to keep things loose, but I have a real tendency to start getting fussy and detailed, which showed up here. If it weren't art, it would be called over-analysis, another trait of mine!

I like this one very much, Beth. I actually really like the contrast between the detailed part and the part which is more a hint or outline of what's there. (I was going to call it a "sketch," in the metaphorical sense, but of course the whole thing is a sketch, isn't it?)
