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.

In the bare light
of a child's room,
down the street,
iridescent waves fold
amid the holes
through the wafer of
a donkey's eye


That's a lovely picture. I had a busy and wonderful weekend. I'm sure it's because you sent good thoughts out to us!

Ahhhh. Enjoying the floating just for a moment on a Monday morning. Thank you.

The petals, the water, the softness somehow seem like the perfect bow and silent comment to the new post on your father-in-law. Soul at rest as life drops away.

Thanks, Bill, Pat, Kaycie. Yes, two bowls filled with different things! I took this one from my shrine and put it on the dinner table on Friday night before guests came - the sacred and secular freely intermingling, why not? The tablecloth is from Damascus, the Chinese bowl a long-ago acquisition from a flea market; it's always been part of the odd collection of objects, reminiscent of many religious traditions, that I keep on my meditation table, and its pure white and blue circle has such a quiet grace.
