"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 Dreams & Wolves

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 Doing v Being

10 February 2019 

Talked with a friend yesterday about the difference we need to remember:  between being a human doing and human being.  We’re driven to do, and we forget how much we need and should value rest.

Make art about rest, about the struggle to rest, about your restful place, about finding real rest.

Daily Prompt Love <3 Second Hand Beauty

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.
