This Week at Gatewood: April 12-18, 2015

Hello! I hope you’ve all had a great week wherever you are. We’re in the midst of NASCAR madness here this weekend, as you might have gathered from the Tuesday feature, so most of us are managing this by stocking up, staying home, and waiting it out ’til Monday. I hope it’s quieter where you are.

Here are our features for the week of April 12-18:

Monday:Fly With Me,” a gorgeous painting by an artist we’ve featured before, Delawer-Omar

Tuesday:Springtime at the Speedway,” some very humorous and timely poetry by Erin Abernethy that makes it almost like being right there in the thick of it, only you won’t smell like smoke afterward.

Wednesday:Like Me,” a second helping of humor for the week (I thought we needed a double dose!). This short piece by Johanna Rigby takes a poke or two at social networking. We hope you like it. 😉

Friday:Becoming,” our weekly meditation card featuring photography by P.L. Miller with a quote by Anaïs Nin. As a reminder, this can be downloaded for free as a meditation card, or you can use it as wallpaper for your phone or tablet. I like to download the new one each week so I have a different wallpaper to ponder every few days.

Our Special Assistant Dr Nicholas was apparently too busy playing hashtag games to make new memes this week. You can catch some of his efforts (and join in, if you like) on Twitter at #piglit and #geographyanauthor. Don’t forget to follow his Twitter feed to be updated whenever a new feature is posted here.

That’s it for this week at Gatewood. Enjoy your weekend, and visit us again soon!

This Week at Gatewood: Weekend Wrap-Up for March 2-7

Hello, and welcome to the weekend! It’s been a crazy weather week here; we’ve had temperatures in the mid-60s, resulting in a lot of snow-melt and flooding, and acres of slush and mud – and temperatures in the low teens, which froze everything solid again.

It’s enough to make a person decide to roll over and hibernate a bit longer. But as Mazie reminds me (several times a day!) there are dogs to be walked and mail to be sorted, and writers to be edited and fed and watered – wait, what?!

I’ll go sort this. Make yourself comfortable, browse around, and see what we did this week.

Monday:Ballet of the Trees,” photography from Katz Bleu

Tuesday:Revolutions,” poetry from Faze with artwork by Delawer-Omar

Wednesday:Opportunity Knocks!“, humor from Hunter MacKenzie, Xavier, and “Queen Z”

Thursday:Three Things Thursday,” our weekly exercise in appreciation; this week’s post is from Frasier MacKenzie

Friday:Landscapes of Consciousness,” photography by P.L. Miller with quote from Terence McKenna

Don’t forget, the Friday photo is a free download for your phone or tablet; share it, print it, ponder and enjoy.

Our best Special Assistant @docnicholas brought us some fun this week:

 

Be sure to follow him on Twitter to catch the latest updates. And speaking of Twitter, we managed to give his profile page there a bit of renovation this week. Drop by and check it out.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for spending time with us. See you again soon!

Revolutions

The Story of Revolution by Delawer-Omar

Artwork: “The Story of Revolution” by Delawer-Omar. Licensed CC by NC-ND-3.0.

by Faze

Somewhere

across the oceans

in a town

on foreign soil

a baby cries out for her mother

a cry the mother cannot hear

a mother who has been strangled by the hands of the revolution who swore to protect her

the revolution against corruption

corruption brought on by power

power brought on by a revolution

an endless cycle

an endless attack

one head falls and another takes its place

corruption is born again

power is born again

and another revolution is born again

an endless cycle

an endless attack

and the populace keeps on praying for the revolution

the revolution against the revolution against the revolution against the revolution

and the baby keeps crying for her mother…
