"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

Make art inspired by an interesting New Year’s tradition.

25 Strangest New Year’s Traditions From Around The World by David Pegg

In Denmark they save all of their unused dishes and plates until the 31st of December when they affectionately shatter them against the doors of all their friends and family.

In Ecuador they celebrate the New Year by burning paper filled scarecrows at midnight. They also burn photographs from the last year. All in the name of good fortune.

In Romania they throw their spare coins into the river to get good luck.

In Scotland the first person to cross the threshold of a home in the new year should carry a gift for good luck, perhaps a coin, bread, salt, coal, evergreen, and/or a drink (usually whiskey).

Daily Prompt Love <3 You Have a Right To

11 April 2017

One of the greatest gifts I’ve received in this life was a single statement. A wise and caring man said to me, “You know, you have a right to peace of mind.”

The simplicity of what he said stunned me in that moment. It also revealed to me how I, for too many reasons to list, more often than not, stood in my own way toward achieving that peace.

Had a wonderful and heartbreaking conversation with my students last night about just this thing, about what keeps them from ‘peace of mind.’  Worries and expectations, the fears they hold for the future, their own and the future of our planet.  We talked about articulating these barriers, and about releasing them. 

Make art about peace of mind.

–Alice B. Fogel
