"From his quiver's laden armory, Cupid drew two arrows of opposing power: one shaft, tipped with gold, rouses love, while the second, forged of iron, smothers all affection".
The following story, with which I've the great pleasure to inaugurate this enchanted channel, is one of my favorites! It features boastful and wrathful gods, bows and arrows, a spellbound lover (whose love was unrequited!), a wild-chase through nature, and a beautiful young girl’s magical transformation into a tree (a laurel tree, to be exact, from which we get the name, "Nobel Laureate"). This wonderful story, from which nothing is missing, is the fabulous tale of Apollo and Daphne. Enjoy!
