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.

quarrtsiluni is such a beautiful blog. (and I love the woodcut you're using to illustrate this post!) I look forward to seeing what arises there in months to come.

Great image here, and what a wonderful name for your new endeavour. I had a look and was immediately captivated by both your writing and Dave's. What a great beginning and I look forward to visiting it regularly.

Thanks for visiting! How about contributing something, Marja-Leena? Images are welcome as well as writing! (I'm quite serious about that; it would be great to see something from you.)

This sounds like an interesting experiment and I'll make sure to visit regularly.
