This Week at Gatewood: June 28 – July 4, 2015

Hello, and thanks for stopping in!

We’ve continued to make improvements on the site this week by adding a Writers Index. This gathers all the work by writer rather than by subject, so if you enjoy the work of a particular writer and want to read more, everything they’ve written is listed in one spot, regardless of topic. The page lists writers in alphabetical order by surname; writers who have more work on the site have their own pages, and you can use the drop-down menu of the Index for that.

The Gallery revision is now complete as well. We’ve added a section on the drop-down menu for P.L. Miller, and I’m told that the photos in that section here are a completely different set from what’s posted on the P.L. Miller Photoblog.

Here are our features for the week of June 28 – July 4:

Monday:The Architecture of Cleveland,” photography by Teran

Tuesday:3:33,” poetry by Hunter MacKenzie

Wednesday:Today I Have Hope” commentary from Rob Colfax

Friday:Wings for the New Highway,” photography by P.L. Miller with a quote from Richard Bach

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

Here’s a bit of humor from our Special Assistant Dr Nicholas:

This Week at Gatewood: June 21-27, 2015

Hello, and thanks for stopping in! We’ve changed our background this week to something a bit lighter, and increased the font size a tiny bit more. Small changes, but I think it makes things a bit easier on the eyes – and that’s important to us, since the latest numbers indicate that many of our visitors stay here reading for an hour or more. Let us know what you think by emailing us at info(at)gatewoodjournal.org or tweeting to @docnicholas.

Here are our features for the week of June 21-28:

Monday:Seaver,” artwork by Zengael

Tuesday:The Photographs of Photographers,” poetry by F.X. MacKenzie

Wednesday:Intro & Preparatory Notes for The Tarot Compendium” from D.V. Gray, Hunter MacKenzie, and “Queen Z”

Friday:Letting Go,” photography by P.L. Miller with wise words from the Tao Te Ching

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

Here’s a bit of humor from our Special Assistant Dr Nicholas:

IN A WORLD...

Be sure to follow @docnicholas on Twitter for daily updates on Journal posts as well as book love, animal humor & rescues, and other items of interest.

That’s it for the Gatewood Weekend Wrap-Up for the week of June 21-27. Enjoy your weekend, and visit us again soon!

This Week at Gatewood: June 14-20

Hello, and thanks for stopping in! We’ve been doing some tweaks on our site this week, mainly in the Archives section. Everything from that page has now been moved to its home in the appropriate category, and the Archives option has been dropped from the menu. We hope this will make browsing easier and result in fewer Error 404 occurrences, as all pages and posts are now in the new format. If you have trouble finding anything, please do notify us (tweet to our Special Assistant Dr Nicholas, or email me at info (at) gatewoodjournal.org) and we’ll get it sorted.

Also, we’ve made the font size slightly bigger for improved readability. Working with Rowan’s “Alzheimer’s Suite” material this week has made us realize that none of us are getting any younger, and being able to read the Journal more easily without squinting would be good.

Here are our features for the week of June 14-20:

Monday:Electric Spiral,” artwork by Xavier

Tuesday:Alzheimer’s Suite,” poetry by Rowan McConnell

Wednesday:Zen and the Art of Mousing,” humor from Steven Valentine & Patrick Redding

Friday:Eccentricities,” photography by P.L. Miller and quote from David Ogilvy

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

Be sure to follow our Special Assistant @docnicholas on Twitter for daily updates on Journal posts as well as humor, art and writing tidbits, and other items of interest. Dr Nicholas has asked me to mention that he’s going to try posting Journal links a bit more often. He didn’t want to annoy people by posting the same links incessantly, but since he now has followers in every time zone from U.S. Pacific Time to New Zealand Standard Time and most points in between, I think it’s reasonable to assume that most of his followers aren’t online at the same time and many probably don’t go back to catch up on tweets that are hours old. If I’m wrong about this and it becomes bothersome, let him know and he can have the pleasure of telling me, “I informed you thusly.”

That’s it for the Gatewood Weekend Wrap-Up for the week of June 14-20. Enjoy your weekend, and visit us again soon!
