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.

So sorry to hear Hattie/Marianna is gone. I haven't been following her blog for a while and I didn't know she was ill. Indeed an interesting individual,outspoken,honest and unpretentious. I wish I'd known her better.
