this is so lovely, Beth!

Thank you. Yes. Hope and a great love.

That Greek landscape evokes the landscape I grew up with in California as a child in the 1950s, especially the blue of the sea. I'm sure that Greek families who were my neighbors as I grew up found in the landscape a sense of home away from home. Western Washington, where I live now, has an entirely different feeling, but Eastern Washington with the Columbia River and fruit orchards and rolling hills brings back memories of the landscape I loved instinctively in childhood.

Absolutely love these, and the reflection that goes along with them.

Lovely. That about some it up, along with admirable and instructive!

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.
