"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 the Day Is the Poem <3

But our hearts will need us
To be steady and strong
So we can stand and face the fire
Burning higher and higher

No way over it
No way around it
If we want it
We have to go through it

Fight for a love
And the world tries to break us down
But the world will bend and the fight will end
Love will always win

Daily Prompt Love <3 Other People's Pictures

3 June 2017

I collect photographs from thrift stores, other people’s pictures sold, I guess, in estate sales and such. I carry some of them with me when I travel, sometimes keep some of them on my night stand, wait for them to tell me their stories, or just so I can say that someone remembers them. 

I scanned in some of my favorites. 

Make art inspired by one of these photos.

Daily Prompt <3 That Beautiful Yawp

22 May 2017

Thanks and Love to that fabulous poet-sister Amy Tudor for posting the article that inspires today’s prompt. 

“Adults in America don’t sing communally. Children routinely sing together in their schools and activities, and even infants have sing-alongs galore to attend. But past the age of majority, at grown-up commemorations, celebrations, and gatherings, this most essential human yawp of feeling—of marking, with a grace note, that we are together in this place at this time—usually goes missing.”

How Communal Singing Disappeared From American Life: And Why We Should Bring It Back

Make art about singing with others, about that joining of voices.
