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.

Thanks Beth! Hope we get to meet up with you in Montreal someday. I'm heading home to Cape Cod for a few days to try to sort out some family issues. Then back to the mountains to wait for snow and skiing.

Wonderful. I used to work in a French bakery in high school, and I knew that the bakers would get there at 2 or 3 AM. By the time I came in on a Saturday at 7 or 8, they had been there, listening to music and making the place smell AMAZING.

Also, there is a certain bleachy smell to bakeries very early in the morning--the floor has been bleached, or the bleachwater dumped in the back (I did this before, too...ugh). And now I kind of like it because it smells familiar.

Thanks for reminding me of this.
