"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 Lost, Sold, and Declined

31 May 2017

For years I suffered with mazeophobia, the fear of getting lost. One family member, I remember before one trip, scoffed, asking if I was afraid of flying. No, I said, I’m afraid of airports. What I actually was fearful of was getting lost in the airport. Not long after that, I ended up stranded in the Minneapolis airport for seventeen hours, walking, walking, every inch of that airport. By the time I finally boarded my plane, I wasn’t afraid of airports anymore. But…the fear of getting lost in general remained.

I bought and studied an atlas. I bought a Garmin GPS. I learned how to use the GPA on my phone. I created a system of tracking my entire journey. I not only got in my car and traveled with others, I got in that little red car and traveled by myself, thousands of miles every year, two lane backroads, me and Garmin and my maps and my notes and my music.

I still have a phobia of becoming lost, but I am more afraid of being trapped, limited, by my fear.

Make art about what it means to be lost.
