I had to read through the govt information sheets to see that my age cohort is allowed to take a walk, and I'm grateful. Our family is coping with the ban on visits to nursing homes, where my father-in-law is a patient. He literally lives for the regular visits. I've organized card-writing so he hears from us every other day or so.

It’s a flock of birds! Lovely. May the sussuration of their wings bring sleep when needed.

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.
