"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 Dreaming of Pirates

10/8/2016

Been helping my son put together his costume for the Renaissance Faire. He’s reaching back to his roots in the coastal lowlands of eastern North Carolina, and going as a pirate this year, appropriate since he lived the earliest years of his life only twenty miles from where the infamous Edward Teach–Blackbeard–made his home in Bath, NC. In fact, archaeologists from my alma mater, East Carolina University, worked in conjunction with the NC Department of Cultural Resources, to raise Balckbard’s ship, the Queen Anne’s Revenge, from those wild waters on my beloved Outer Banks. (ECU’s mascot is a Pirate 🙂 I am purple and gold forever! 🙂 )

All this work on his costume, plus, I think, the current political situation, probably led to the dream I had last night where I was pouring beer for ruffians in some steampunk version of an 18th century tavern. 

Make art about pirates. Or inspired by the word ‘pirate.’
