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.

Oh my, to be near this birthing of the worlds, where earth's geology is so active and close to the surface, to feel that connection to a time before we humans even existed... so mind-blowing and awe inspiring! What an amazing experience to have on your birthday, Beth! Now I'm going to revisit that Geologic Journey DVD episode showing Iceland, as second-best to actually being there. Can you tell I'm a bit envious :-) ?

Fascinating re Iceland. Have a good time in London - hope you can take in John Soane's house, Lincoln's Inn Fields - wonderful eccentric museum.
