It's great to find out what inspired the beautiful angel. I feel very privileged!

I wish I had had time to print more, but I just did a limited edition of 25. And I'm so glad you like yours! Hope you liked the pomegranate-dwelling cats too!

We love our print also Beth - thank you!!! Love hearing about your travels.

Greece is out these days for the Robinsons. Too much walking up steep gradients on rough treacherous surfaces, VR is not up to it. But I was able to flick through your wonderfully clear photos, and vicariously live the terrain. Would that I were able to chuck in little jewels like "St Paul may have preached there." Monks and monasteries are fascinating even to non-believers.

As I re-flicked through the pix it occurred to me you must have a very expensive camera. Is this the case?

Thanks, K&H!!

Robbie, believe it or not, I take all these pictures with my phone. Phone cameras have gotten so good that even my professional photographer husband sometimes uses his rather than the fancy cameras he does have

Your print is lovely, Beth (it arrived yesterday) and I'm thrilled to have it, thanks so much. As you know I love Byzantine art. My favourite of the many Christ Pantocrator images is a 10th Century fresco in a church in Boyana, Bulgaria which I would love to visit one day. This Christ is less about power, more a kind of divine humanity, seeing into the soul,as you said. How do I attach a photo here?

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.
