Having been putting up daily images of Cupid being spanked by his mother, Venus, the mother/son issue has been fresh in my head all week. Adding the timing of Dan's discussion to this seems oddly coincidental. Anyway, I decided to revisit some of my stories that have a strong maternal theme to them and in doing so I figured that along with my "Cupid-of-the-Day" I'd link a "Mother/son Story" as well. So here they are for the start of this week:
"Still a Mom" (click to read)---a story in which an adult son in his 40's, asks his mother for a spanking. In many ways this story is a fictional handling of some of my own most private thoughts regarding my own mother on whom "Loretta" is solidly based. Even many of the little details running throughout the story are based on things I recall from my own childhood. Essentially, this piece was almost a way to process thoughts that would otherwise have remained buried.
And taking a break from two dimensional depictions, here we have a lovely bronze of Cupid and Venus:
Yet again, Venus seems to be enjoying.....or at least bemused by her disciplinary duties. Cupid here seems less pleased.
