"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 <3 That Beautiful Yawp

22 May 2017

Thanks and Love to that fabulous poet-sister Amy Tudor for posting the article that inspires today’s prompt. 

“Adults in America don’t sing communally. Children routinely sing together in their schools and activities, and even infants have sing-alongs galore to attend. But past the age of majority, at grown-up commemorations, celebrations, and gatherings, this most essential human yawp of feeling—of marking, with a grace note, that we are together in this place at this time—usually goes missing.”

Make art about singing with others, about that joining of voices.

Sometimes the Prompt Is How We Connect

Daily Prompt

Building the first issue of HeartWood 🙂 So excited to be part of bringing these beautiful words out into the world. Thinking about how art lets connect in ways unlike anything else, how it lets us reach across space, across time, across history, and commune with each other.

Communion defined: the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental, emotional, or spiritual level.

Make art about communion. Or about art as communion.

Sometimes the Prompt Gets By With a Little Help From Friends

Daily Prompt

Great conversation thread yesterday started by the amazing poet and person Karen Craigo on Facebook regarding what we can do all to support poetry and other poets. Got me thinking about how my mama always quoted John Donne, his “Devotions upon Emergent Occasions,” saying “No man is an island.” 

Make art about community, abut community-building, about our need for community.
