This Week at Gatewood: July 12–18, 2015

clockwork heart

by Johanna Rigby

Hello, and thanks for stopping in for the weekend wrap-up! We’ve been continuing to add a few tweaks to the site as well as updating our publishing schedule. This week we culled outdated links from our blogroll; it’s now been renamed to “Writers We Like” because we’ve added some new sites that aren’t blogs. There are some really good writers in that list (which randomizes itself every time you visit so that no one’s on the bottom all the time), so when you’ve finished reading here, be sure to check out some of their work too.

Our publishing schedule has now moved to a 6-day format to give you visual arts Monday and Wednesday, poetry and other writing on Tuesday and Thursday. The meditation card photo stays on Friday, and Weekend Wrap-Up stays on Saturday.

Here are the features for the week of July 12–18:

Monday:McCovey 44,” painting by Zengael

Tuesday:To a Lover on the Other Side of Time,” poetry by F.X. MacKenzie

Wednesday:Fractal with Purple Lensing,” art by Devin Moore

Thursday:Iraqnophobia,” satirical humor by Erin Abernethy

Friday:Art and Healing,” photography by P.L. Miller with quote by psychologist Rollo May

The Friday photo can be downloaded for free as a meditation card or wallpaper for your phone or tablet, or you can print it as a standard 4×6 from your computer. Share, print, ponder… enjoy!

Our Special Assistant Dr Nicholas brought us some good humor this week:

Be sure to follow his Twitter feed. It’s the official Gatewood Twitter account, and he posts an interesting mix of Gatewood announcements, poetry links, mental health articles, and general silliness.

Just a reminder, you can now subscribe to Gatewood Journal and have it delivered monthly to your e-mail. It’s quick and easy, and you’ll never miss a feature. We won’t spam you with a bunch of other stuff, and your information stays completely private. Hit the subscription box and make an e-pigeon happy!

That’s it for this week at Gatewood. Have a great weekend, and visit us again soon!

This Week at Gatewood: July 5 – 11, 2015

Hello, and thanks for stopping in!

We’ve finally done it: added a subscription box to our site! Frankly, I’m a little intimidated by MailChimp, but I held my breath and poked around until I felt we had something usable, and our tests showed it to be in good working order. Our e-pigeons are standing by to bring you your newsletter!

Don’t worry – all the hard part is done on our end. Your part is easy. Just put your e-mail address in the box, click the button, and wait for your confirmation e-mail. Then click the button when your confirmation e-mail arrives. That’s all. (One note: I have noticed that subscriptions managed through MailChimp take a little while to send out the confirmation e-mail. It doesn’t instantly show up in your box. Our tests ranged from 5 to 15 minutes.)

What do you get when you subscribe? Well, currently the plan is to send out a monthly newsletter with all our features for the month. Like a weekly wrap-up, only monthly, because we don’t want to overload your e-mail box. Like a magazine, only digital, because we love trees.

Needless to say, we won’t share your information, and you won’t get a ton of useless stuff or spam from us. We have no relatives in Nigerian royalty, and no one here has the slightest idea what to do if your penis isn’t everything you’d want.

Here are our features for the week of July 5 – 11:

Monday:Corpus Libertas,” photography and digital artwork by K.C. Collins

Tuesday:Thievery,” poetry by Rowan McConnell

Wednesday:Seven Questions on Life & Death” an interview with D.V. Gray from Hunter MacKenzie

Friday:Monsters and Fear,” photography by P.L. Miller with a quote from Mike Carey

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 @docnicholas on Twitter for daily updates on Journal posts as well as all sorts of humor, animal pics and rescues, and other tidbits of interest. If you have ideas for things you’d like to see included in the newsletter, or general suggestions, we’d love to hear from you. E-mail us or contact Doc on Twitter with your ideas.

That’s it for the Gatewood Weekend Wrap-Up for the week of July 5 – 11, 2015. Enjoy your weekend, and visit us again soon!

This Week at Gatewood: March 29 – April 4, 2015

marchwind

by Frasier MacKenzie

Hello all! I think spring is finally making its way to our area after a harsh cold snap over the weekend. We’re starting to see some very pale green leaves on the trees, and the weather has been just about as close to perfect as you can get. It’s that very short time of year when it’s warm enough to have the windows open but not hot enough to need the air conditioner yet!

Here are our features for the week of March 29 – April 4:

Monday:Dry Falls,” photography by Teran

Tuesday:Chasing Smoke,” poetry by Alesia Tarkington

Wednesday:UFO Sighting in Moravian Falls,” by Patrick Redding

Friday:Serious Solitude,” photography by P.L. Miller and quote from Pablo Picasso

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

Here are some favorite memes posted by our Special Assistant Dr Nicholas this week:

If you liked these, you’ll want to follow @docnicholas on Twitter for silliness, cat photos, tidbits about writing, and of course, daily updates on Journal posts.

That’s it for the Gatewood Weekend Wrap-Up for March 29-April 4. Enjoy the weekend, and go easy on the Cadbury creme eggs. Visit us again soon, won’t you?
