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.

Beautiful painting and words Beth - these are very discouraging times. Hope other than that you and J. are well.

Wholly agee with your sentiments re the world stage. If I were to make a list of everything that's hair-tearingly tooth-gnashingly mind-blowingly wrong nowadays and another one of everything that's upliftingly right, I know which would be the longer one! In my view anyway.
