These were created in the years following some major incidents that I experienced within mere hours of each other on an election day, and while traditional observances of Dia de Los Muertos were also taking place. In order to sort out my feelings as I recovered, I delved more deeply into learning about the mythology of Eros, mischievous son of Venus, as well as the holiday celebrating our departed loved ones. I read about how Cupid had been "cutefied" into a merely insipid baby by the Christian church. This led me to reading Til We Have Faces, written by C. S. Lewis, which includes the darker aspects of the story of Cupid and Psyche, for which I felt deeply appreciative.
