"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 Alone

11 January 2018

I have to be alone very often. I’d be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That’s how I refuel.” -Audrey Hepburn

The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”-Aldous Huxley

I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.”-Henry David Thoreau

I have always needed a lot solitude. These days I need even more. 

Make art about solitude.

Spent the weekend on the electronic grid, phone in airplane mode, no social media, and got some serious writing done, as well as some needed quiet.

Make art about going off the grid, however you interpret that.

Make art inspired by this line from one of my favorite poets, Pattian Rogers:

Mothers, fathers, our kind, tell me again that death doesn’t matter. Tell me it’s just a limitation of vision ,a fold of landscape,a deep flax-and-poppy-filled gully hidden on the hill….

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
