Marvellous poem and well chosen for these times, Beth, as is your meditation.

I have a hard time looking at the news on TV at present, especially when the screen is taken up by our government ministers who seem more and more to be programmed robots, badly programmed at that, endlessly repeating platitudes or outright lies which they insist are true. As for the news from America....no use to talk about it, it's beyond words.

Sending you love. Keep well and keep on keeping on.

Yeah the Poles, what is it with Poles and Poetry? This post made me go back to Czeslaw Milosz to reread some. This time ‘Yokimura’ on her unborn dead baby and Wislawa Szymborska and the great ‘ Love at first sight’

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.
