My Photo

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.

I really like that photograph!

Thanks, NT, I liked it a lot too, once I saw it!

I love the photo - wonderfully illustrative of what you write about the unexpected strangeness and beauty to be found if we can relax into the ordinary and uncomfortable.

Actually this photo reminded me of some of yours, Jean!

Anti-heatwave prescription. Hum quietly to yourself any of the Four Last Songs concentrating on ensuring the long, long melodic lines are continuous and unbroken. Offer up thanks to your Creator that you are a soprano and are therefore equipped to see into Old Richard's soul, as he has saw into yours all those years ago.

Yes, I love photos that are like found objects. I hope the heat lets up on you. I find heat in the city to be intolerable because of the bad air quality that goes with it.
