"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

Love After Love

Derek Walcott

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.


 

Daily Prompt Love <3 Second Hand Beauty

9 February 2019

I love thrift and second hand stores. Not only does thrifting feel like a treasure hunt, but it’s good for the planet. After a rough couple of weeks, I rewarded myself by doing a little thrift shopping yesterday.

Make art about an unexpected thrift find, about second hand beauty.

Daily Prompt Love <3 Pictures of Love

7 February 2018 

Woke up hearing someone sing this.

Make art about the Love in that photograph. 

from Photograph
Ed Sheeran
….
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home
Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul
And it’s the only thing that I know, know
I swear it will get easier,
Remember that with every piece of you
Hm, and it’s the only thing we take with us when we die
Hm, we keep this love in this photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts were never broken
And time’s forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone….

At twelve, I took my confirmation name from St. Margaret of Scotland, wife of King Malcolm, who was particularly known for feeding the poor, for, though she was a queen, going out among them daily, and for inviting hundreds of the poor into the castle to eat.

It’s All Saints Day.
