"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 Catch-Up <3


It’s my oldest son’s birthday today. I never could have know, twenty-eight years ago, that I wasn’t just having a baby: I was meeting one of my best ever friends.

Make art about adult children. Or about best friends.


With my oldest son J, early 1989


Make art about lighting a candle for someone you Love.



Been thinking all day about living in other times. I would have made a terrible Victorian woman 🙂

Make art imagining yourself in another time, another era.



Love is a Verb.

Make art about Love in action in unexpected ways.


Daily Prompt Catch-Up! Grief, Gratitude, and Finding Best Friends

3 /4/2016

I have Complicated Grief-Related PTSD. Some days I’m okay. Some days I think I’m okay, then I’m just—not, not okay at all.

Make art about grief.



The only way I have survived the extreme loss I’ve experienced in my life is by making a choice every day, sometimes every moment, to live not in grief, but in Gratitude.

Make art about Gratitude.



Both my sons were home this weekend, and one of my greatest joys is to see them together as grown men, not just brothers, but friends. My best friend was my brother, and my oldest son once said, “How cool it is—to find your own best friend right in your family!”

Make art about siblings as friends.
