Glad it went well!

How I envy you. Loss of hearing and a persistent ringing in my right ear have pretty well ruined the pleasures of music for me. I'm reading more poetry, though, which compensates some.

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.
