"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

Make art inspired by this line from one of my favorite poets, Pattian Rogers:

Daily Prompt Catch-Up <3 Saying Thank You, Adult Children, & Peace

17 June 2017

Received several thank you emails from my online students today when our class finished. They never understand, I don’t think, how much I have to thank them for ❤

My son came home this weekend, to celebrate Father’s Day with me 🙂 He says since I’ve been both mother and father, I get to celebrate both days. My mama always joked, If you can stand them til they’re twenty-two, you’ll get them back as friends. 🙂 I am so grateful for those kids, my three closest friends ❤ 

Make art about children as friends.
