"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

Sometimes You Have To Give the Prompt Away

Daily Prompt 

“I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.”~Kahlil Gibran

Just wrote an email to a famous person on behalf of a former student, not at the student’s request, but just because i believe the student’s amazing and if nothing else, I can put the kid’s name in front of someone, And yeah it’s a totally idealistic shot in the dark, but what the hey? Lifetime mantra: The worst they can do is tell me No, right? And if they do, then I’m no worse off than I was before I asked. 🙂 

Survival tip #1 for me? When the moment feels darkest, do something good and loving for someone else. That’s what brings the Light ❤

Make art about healing through generosity.

Sometimes You Have to Let the Prompt Go

Daily Prompt

“Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.”~Kahlil Gibran

Make art about releasing control.
