I'm sorry about your father. Is he having a surgery? He is a wise man, everybody knows and likes him. It makes more bearable during his stay at the hospital.

So beautifully written - I can completely see it all. I wonder what it feels like to relive this as you write it, and presumably re-experience your own nervous tension around your dad's hospital stay?

And the question mark that hovers over being alone in that house. Beth, you write so smoothly.

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.
