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.

Often, it seems, the lack of bright sun/light intensifies colours. Moss and lichen, on a grey day, can be absolutely neon! Every hue seems deeper and richer, and you put it so nicely...

Luscious words, Beth! Hope you and J had a great Thanksgiving, perhaps with your family.
