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.

Yes, practical, focused work helps, especially in a garden, especially in a communal one, I would imagine. And there's something about compost, particularly, that I've always found so reassuring (I'm so glad that condo-composting was regulated into effect here last year. I don't think I could bear to live somewhere that required me to throw that organic material into the regular wastestream, and I'm not sure I'm ready to vermi-compost inside!)
I'll look forward to your words on last week's tragic events (ongoing, really, much as we would love to consign them to history). If you don't post them here, will you let us know where they're being published?

I've been doing some transplanting of orchids and cactus and in general just enjoying my peaceful, quiet home.

I am thankful for work that heals, and was captivated by the image of the lone swimmer in the rain. Like Frances, I am hoping to read your piece whether here or in the publication.

Thank you, Frances, and Duchesse, and Hattie, I'm glad your home is a refuge -- gardeining has helped me too.

The link to the opinion piece in the Montreal Gazette is now up, along with a new post about it on the blog.
