With Valentines Day just around the corner I thought now would be a good time to talk about Cupid. Cupid was the Roman god of love, derived from the Greek god Eros. Cupid was the son of the goddess Venus, usually depicted as a boy carrying a quiver of arrows. Cupids arrows could draw people together, or pull them apart. I find it really interesting that he could tear a relationship apart as well as put one together.
