"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 Your Song

28 April 2017

Friday Call for Submissions Love <3 Light Journal Seeks Poetry & Photography

Light: A Journal of Photography & Poetry

Summer Issue – Solitude

Deadline: March 31, 2017

 

Give it some thought. Solitude is a common topos of art. Loneliness and estrangement are familiar subjects. Being content by oneself, mindful in the present moment, is another recognizable theme. We welcome works that appeal to recognition of popular contexts, but Light encourages rethinking what’s familiar. Ask yourself, “What makes this different?” Perhaps solitude isn’t simple. Maybe, in some contexts, it is. Send us your finest work that explores the truth and the little white lies we tell ourselves about solitude. Send anything, but guide us to see it anew.

Because I Needed to Stand in the Light <3

The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.  -Ming-Dao Deng

4 August 2016

A woman at a gas station came running toward me, smiling and waving and yelling, “Donna! Donna! I haven’t seen you in so long!” I smiled, shaking my head, waiting for her to realize that I wasn’t Donna after all. As she reached me, her face fell, and she looked so embarraassed, and I said, “I’m sorry.” She laughed and said, “No, I’m sorry. I could’ve sworn–” She laughed. I said, “I’m Mary, but I bet you could find Donna, if you looked. Have you tried Facebook?” I told her about finding my friend Lynne again after many years, and how blessed we both felt. She said, “I haven’t looked for her, but I think I will.” She left smiling, and I finished pumping my gas, climbing back into my car, wishing, for just a second, I had been Donna, this friend who brought such a smile to the woman’s face.

Make art about mistaken identity. Or about finding that wonderful friend again.
