Hello all! I hope you’ve had a good week. It’s been a good week here for discovering writers; I had the honor of reading a packet of poetry sent to us by Robin Sinclair (one of which we featured Tuesday), and I can’t think when I’ve been so immediately taken with someone’s work. You’ll be seeing more very soon. In the meantime, check out her website to see more.

We also rediscovered a folder of work that was left with us as part of an estate clearance. Occasionally we get boxes of papers from families who’ve lost a relative; if it’s a well-known writer, they generally get donated to libraries. If it’s a lesser-known talent, it’s sometimes sent to us so that their work isn’t just lost forever. We catalog and archive it, and sometimes we find a gem or two to show you here.

Here are our features for the week of May 10-16:

Monday:Wrought Iron Stars #3,” photography by K.C. Collins

Tuesday:Where It Started,” poetry by Robin Sinclair

Wednesday:Reader Madness: An Intervention,” by Rob Colfax

Friday:Toward Growth,” photography by P.L. Miller and quote from Abraham Maslow

Remember, our Friday photo can be downloaded for free as a meditation card for your phone, tablet or computer. Share, print, ponder… enjoy!
