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.

Well put, Beth. I have been enjoying your perspective and Jonathan's on Mexico so much. It's a beautiful,tragic land.

All very true, Beth.Something drastic will need to be done to clear the air in places like Mexico City, Beijing and many more but how long will it take? Meanwhile people helplessly suffer the consequences.

I hope you will feel better soon and that soon too, rays of sunshine will penetrate Montreal's icy air.

I love your and Jonathan's Mexico reports.

So true Beth. Great perspective as always. Loved seeing your and Jonathan's posts..especially about the Pope's visit. Sorry to hear you had respiratory issues
and i am sure you are happy to be home breathing the clear but cold Montreal air. Get better soon!!!
xxoo

Thank you for this post.

I too have enjoyed your posts and Jonathan's. Quite shocking before and after images of the valley that is now Mexico City. I've heard of the pollution there, and of course in many other places which are often poorer as well. We all live on this same earth and need to change. A lot of it is due to capitalism so it is hard to change that.

I hope you will feel better soon and may it warm up in Montreal. It must be a shock to the body to move from cold to hot and back again.

You write: "rich and highly-developed native culture,... natural world with which they had always lived in harmony". Isn't that a bit romantic? Not saying that colonization was good or that Western civilization/capitalism is the best system, but always living in harmony seems a stretch.
