VALENTINE'S Day at
il caffe di napoli
According to legend, Cupid's arrows comes in two varieties: the Golden Arrow, which generally signifies true love, and the Leaden Arrow, which represents wanton and sensual passion. He is also known to sometimes carry a torch with which to inflame desire between men and woman. Cupid is not always successful in his endeavours, however. Sometimes his arrows turn people away from those fall in love with them. In some mythological tales, Venus was scratched by one of Cupid's arrows while playing with her son, the result being that the Goddess fell instantly in love with Adonis...the first man she saw after receiving the wound.
