"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 Janus at the Gate


Dreamt a conversation with a friend last night about the ancient Roman god Janus. In ancient Roman religion and myth, Janus is the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, doorways, passages, and endings. He is usually depicted as having two faces, since he looks to the future and to the past. 

Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, and hence war and peace. The doors of his temple were open in time of war, and closed to mark the peace. As a god of transitions, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange, and is associated with progression of past to future, of one condition to another, of one vision to another, and of one universe to another.

Make art about Janus, or about gateways, doorways, transitions from past to future, from one world to another. 


Sometimes the Prompt is the Key :-)


Dreamt someone I love gave me a ring full of keys and I gleefully skipped around unlocking and throwing open doors. 🙂

Make art about keys, about finding the key. keys
