"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Nighttime & Dreams Daily Prompt
Last night I dreamt my beautiful friend Beth and I were escorting a huge group–hundreds–of people on some kind of trek to safety through a beautiful wild desert-like landscape. Beth walked in the front of the long long line of people, and I covered the back, making sure we lost no one. I carried a small child, a little boy with outrageously blue eyes, on my hip, We had planned for years for the time when we would have to do this, and so we knew what we had to do to get them where we were taking them safely. It felt good and strong and somehow celebratory, despite knowing it was a rescue and there was so much that had to be done. I was very glad to have Beth there with me.
Make art about rescue.
