"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 The Best Revenge

19 June 2019 

When I was twelve or thirteen, a friend’s father, a somewhat pompous college professor, the kind who insisted on being addressed as Doctor…. told me I would never amount to anything. 

As I say my gratitude prayers for today, I include him, that adult who was obviously so damaged or insecure that he felt compelled to strike out at a child. I took what he said as a challenge, a dare, a call to my Aries spirit to not only succeed, but to also surpass not only his poor expectations, but the much greater ones I already had for myself then. 

Make art about success being the best revenge.
