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.

Kia Ora Beth,
Happy to read of your connection with a fellow blogger and like minded person. The world of blogging seems to have really contracted from a few years ago. I am pleased to have met several bloggers along the way, and always have found it a worthwhile experience. And some of those meetings have resulted into valuble and treasured friendships. Seems sometimes Facebook has made us far more into sound byte people than the time involved in sitting down with a cup of coffee and reading a blog. Berlin is a city high on my dream list. Have a great day.
Arohanui,
Robb

Beth,it really cheers me up to read this. You are a lucky woman to have such wonderful experiences.

Robb, I agree with your observations - that's been my experience too. And I hoep someday you and I will be among the bloggers who have met in person!

Hattie, sorry that you need cheering up at all, but glad this story did the trick. I do feel very lucky to have the chance to travel some at this point in my life, and it's great when it includes meeting friends.
