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 found the article sensitive and well-drawn; thank you for the link.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Duchesse.

Thanks for putting my card in your still-life, Beth - I love being there.
And what a sympathique article about Jonathan and his book - the photo of him is great too, gripping that coffee cup tightly! Really interesting to read the background information that I didn't know about.

That is such a good interview. I put a link to it on my Facebook page.

I never knew what Candlemas signified, liturgically, though I always notice when we make it through Candlemas / Imbolc / the Feast of Brighid / Groundhog Day -- because, as you say, it's the midway point between the first day of winter and the first day of spring. Thank you for explaining it!
