"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 Some People Are Just Good

10 December 2017 

Some people you meet are just GOOD, to the core, the real-by-gawd goodness shimmering from them like light. Mike Hamer, my office mate in my first teaching job at East Carolina University, was one of those people, good, smart, kind, funny, gentle, authentic, loving, decent to the core. 

Rest in Peace, Mike. Travel safely and sweetly. This world will miss you sorely, but I can already hear the heavenly music from here. 

Make art about someone whose goodness emanates, shines, in everything they do. Pay tribute to them while they’re still walking here with us. 

Daily Prompt Love <3 Honoring

13 November 2017

Today is my late husband’s birthday, and the anniversary of my baby brother walking on to the next life. So to celebrate them, today, I launched a new literary magazine, K’in. 

They filled my life with so much beauty and humor and wisdom and joy. It only seems right to honor them by creating something beautiful. 

Make art about honoring the dead.
