This Week at Gatewood: August 16–22, 2015


by Frasier MacKenzie

Hello, and thanks for stopping in!

The kids are back to school here, summer’s winding down a bit, and we’re starting to see the squirrels very industriously gathering and hiding nuts among the trees. Most of us here look forward to fall; we know winter’s not far behind, but for now, we look forward to that very brief time of the cooler temperatures and that certain stillness in the air. Unless you’re a squirrel, and then it’s really all about the nuts.

Here are our features for the week of August 16–22:

Monday:Appalachian Postcard,” art by Zengael

Tuesday:Arcade Funeral,” poetry by R. Kane

Wednesday:Bathroom Crucifix” photography by Nez

Thursday:The Duckling Says…,” some humorous short fiction of the supernatural variety by Patrick Redding

Friday:Sea Walls,” photography by P.L. Miller with a quote from psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison

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 humor, thoughts on books, animal pics and rescues, and all your behind-the-scenes Journal action (or lack thereof). It’s like getting all the extras that come with a DVD, plus cat hair!

Did you know you can subscribe to Gatewood Journal and receive a monthly newsletter with all our features for the month? Like a weekly wrap-up, only monthly, so your e-mail box won’t get cluttered. Like a magazine, only digital, because we love trees.
