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.

Fascinating! I'm always at least as interested in your "unpacking" of your drawings as I am in the works themselves. . .

Your drawings are changing, becoming more intriguing.
And the book came, as I told you. I love it. It's out now on loan to a neighbor, and when she has read it and when I have had time to reflect on it I'll have more to say.

I wondered, too, what drew you to that composition, and your explanation is illuminating and touching.

Folk can write too while thinking about something else completely. However, it's not to be recommended. In my experience it can lead to sentences out of order in a paragraph. A very strange effect. You re-read, looking to correct, you get the sense but as if through butter muslin. Amazingly, it may take time to diagnose the fault. A nightmare in paragraphs devoted to summary.
