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.

Tilia, linden, lime... What is it about lindens? There's Coleridge, with "This Lime-Tree Bower, My Prison," and Vogelweide's "Under der linden,"

P. S. Glad to see myself three times on your "Book List" page of recent reads! What fun! And four times if you count being a sixth of "The Book of Ystwyth."

P. P. S. Like those new pictures of your studio (and hands) on the Etsy shop "About" page.

I love Linden trees and love these, especially the second haiku -they'll be running through my mind as I walk under the many in the area around my home.

I love the added space/time dimensions you capture by giving more than one 'take' of this tree. Are you reading "To the Lighthouse"? I didn't really understand what Virginia W. was at, until I saw Vanessa Bell's paintings.

Write nice.Oh continue to work hard. Refueling.

That was really nice and I will be looking forward for more from you.
