"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

Daily Prompt Love <3 Singing, and Solace, and Bridges

7 January 2018

Woke up hearing a beautiful tenor voice singing this song. 

“When evening falls so hard, I will comfort you…..When darkness comes, and pain is all around, Like a bridge over troubled water, I will ease your mind….” 

“Sail on, silver girl, sail on by. Your time has come to shine….”

Make art inspired by the last song you heard. Or about bridges. Or about being there for someone. 

Daily Prompt Love <3 Laugh, Giggle, Titter, Guffaw

19 December 2017 

Dreamt my sweet daddy last night, and man, did we laugh! My daddy could find the funny in anything, and I mean anything, sometimes to the point that Mama’d swat him on the arm and scold, “Hugh! Stop it!” 

He often laughed to the point of tears, his capacity for joy and laughter ‘gettin away with him,’ as we say in the South, and more than once, we kids found ourselves laughing to tears right along with him. 

What a gift that was, his humor, teaching us the freedom and power of laughter, of seeing the funny in whatever we found around us, that teaching us to laugh, especially at ourselves. 

Make art about someone with that capacity for humor, about laughing, about the power of laughter.
