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.

Yum. How did the bundt cake turn out?

It's so satisfying, isn't it, to complete a sketchbook? Even though I don't draw much, I use a 11-by-14-inch art journal for my writing journal. (I like the space for clippings and for margins.) I go through one every year and a half, on average, and I want to develop some kind of religious ceremony -- nothing elaborate, necessarily -- for a volume's retirement.

Hi Peter, yes, it's so satisfying! Thanks for telling me about your journals, ad I agree, there should be some sort of ceremonial retirement fete when we make the switch to the new one. I just ordered two for next year (one hardbound and one spiral) and am wondering how to divide my time between them - it's going to feel sort of like two-timing, I think!
