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.

Another seamless thumbnail triumph. Beth, this is great.

What Dick said. So much is encapsulated in this little cameo, complete of itself.

Killer last line, Beth. Great writing.

As the others said! Love the play of emotions finishing up with that stunning last line.

How wonderful, Beth. When I was a young girl flying on vacation with my parents, I always wanted to try walking on the clouds. I hadn't thought of that for years.

So good. I love your memoir-writing, but these forays into fiction make me hope you'll take that path from time to time, too.

Echoing Dave, I love the last line.
