[6-16-2009 Update Insert: Most of what is in this space is now moot. I found out what I was doing wrong and have reinstated Archives and Labels searches. They do work. However, in certain cases you may prefer Labels to Archives. Example: 1976 Today begins in November of 2006 and concludes in December of 2006, but there are other related posts in other months. Note: Labels only shows 20 posts at a time. There are 21 hubs, making 21 (which is for 1976 Today) an older hub.] ********************************* to my online poems and song lyrics using Archives. Use hubs for finding archival locations but do not link through them. Originally an AOL Journal, where the archive system was nothing like the system here, this blog was migrated from there to here in October of 2008. Today (Memorial/Veteran's Day, May 25, 2009) I discovered a glitch when trying to use a Blogger archive. Now, it may be template-related, but I am unable to return to S M or to the dashboard once I am in the Archives. Therefore, I've decided on this approach: a month-by-month post guide. The sw you see in the codes here stood for Salchert's Weblog when I began it in November of 2006. It later became Sprintedon Hollow. AOL provided what were called entry numbers, but they weren't consistent, and they didn't begin at the first cardinal number. That is why the numbers after "sw" came to be part of a post's code. ************** Here then is the month-by-month post guide: *2006* November: 00001 through 00046 - December: 00047 through 00056 -- *2007* January: 00057 through 00137 - February: 00138 through 00241 - March: 00242 through 00295 - April: 00296 through 00356 - May: 00357 through 00437 - June: 00438 through 00527 - July: 00528 though 00550 - August: 00551 through 00610 - September: 00611 through 00625 - October: 00626 through 00657 - November: 00658 through 00729 - December: 00730 through 00762 -- *2008* January: 00763 through 00791 - February: 00792 through 00826 - March: 00827 through 00849 - April: 00850 through 00872 - May: 00873 through 00907 - June: 00908 through 00931 - July: 00932 through 00955 - August: 00956 through 00993 - September 00994 through 01005 - October: 01006 through 01007 - November: 01008 through 01011 - December: 01012 through 01014 -- *2009* January: 01015 through 01021 - February: 01022 through 01028 - March: 01029 through 01033 - April: 01034 through 01036 - May: 01037 through 01044 - ******************************************************* 1976 Today: 2006/11 and 2006/12 -- Rooted Sky 2007: 2007/01/00063rsc -- Postures 2007: 2007/01/sw00137pc -- Sets: 2007/02/sw00215sgc -- Venturings: 2007/03/00216vc -- The Undulant Trees: 2007/03/00266utc -- This Day's Poem: 2007/03/00267tdpc -- Autobio: 2007/04/sw00316ac -- Fond du Lac: 2007/04/00339fdl -- Justan Tamarind: 2007/05/sw00366jtc -- Prayers in December: 2007/05/sw00393pindc -- June 2007: 2007/06/sw00440junec -- Seminary: 2007/07/sw00533semc -- Scatterings: 2008/08/00958sc ** Song Lyrics: 2008/02/sw00797slc ********** 2009-06-02: Have set S M to show 200 posts per page.

Postures 2007 - 58 poems - 1963 into 1989 - Preview Postures was originally published in 1980 under my Thinking Lizard imprint and my Alden St. Cloud pen name as Side One and Side Two in the cassette medium. Several changes to it have been made since then, the latest of which is a revision to the ending of my "Symphony" poem, a revision I made today: 2007 031 02 1 3 or 2007-01-31. [ 02/06/07: I recently revised the aforementioned. I know it seems weird to be telling you this since I'm not showing here either that revision or the present one. My purpose is this: to emphasize my revisioning habit. ] From what I can tell, the 22 presently in S1 were written in 1963, 1964, and/or 1965. Two of the cassette S1 poems have been deleted. The 35 presently in S2 were written after 1965. Two of the cassette S2 poems have been deleted, but two others from its time period have been added: "To My Student Poets" and "Four for John Ashbery". Just as I am likely to revise anything I have written at any time, so also I may decide to add appropriate poems to this work. I have decided to place each poem on a separate page instead of placing all the poems in a given Side on one page. However, I will keep the Side format. [ On 9-18-07 I added a poem likely written in 1989. It is #23 on Side One. That could change, but for now this book has 58 poems. --09/19/07-- ] - Below is a possible cover design:

P O S T U R E S 2 0 0 7 O _ ) ? \ + - ( ! / 1 0 } . [ > < { : ] ^ v ~ ; | - Next is what I had for the inside cover: About Me, and About This Book There is too much to say, and not enough time to say it in. That is the first thing about me; for I am a Capricorn, and am ruled by Saturn. To say I am an insane eclectic hermit/ would not be improper. These are the 2nd, 3rd, 4th things. I am, after all, an epileptic who also has osteoporosis and other ailments. However, I'm not a danger, at least not in a bodily way, being the itsy- bitsy I am. My interests are words and numbers, and trying to be always kind, even if I/ sometimes/ fail to be. These are the 5th through the 12th. Am I not pretty silly? Don't laugh too long now, or you'll hurt your tummy. This volume of poems exemplifies what you have just read about me; but/ it was first written long ago and I, now, am 65. Changes-- constants that they are--ever rule; and so, alas, each who/ is Earth-alive/ must ever vie with them. Brian A. Salchert 2006-05-30
