Rhodingeedaddee is my node blog. See my other blogs and recent posts.


[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.

Justan Tamarind: Book I e16 Of castigating books, memorials. But Moiland is not Aethea, and gulls To one, may, to an other, be hawks. Each has/ its own kernels, its own hulls; And if, of Ruam, Seth Bedara talks A thousand times (though there is no need), Crowds will gather: in yards and streets, on walks; For they/ will/ have their saints, and not a reed Or whip or chain could change them. Indeed, What is done in deed, and satisfies Our highest instincts, must realize Our highest praise. Today, the Tamarind line Shall end itself: an act which Ruam's eyes Would brighten at, as some men's do from wine, While Rofnoe's would be turned aside and down, Though he too was a king of heart and spine, A ruler of imperishable renown; The fourth of Moiland to receive a crown Of gratitude. That observation spire, Or spire to be, from which we may admire This region's beauties: from the Durin Sea To Ranyon, and Fudera's crumbling pyre; From The Mounds of Tamarind to Grau-Lee, Where the Durin mountains twine to the shore And Rofnoe's village, Edenshire, where he Was born, that tower--. "No monarchs anymore?! You mean what you say, DeVry?! We?! What for? Should the squirrels forget to gather meats And starve? What nonsense--this, he greets Us with! Yes, we did agree to let you, You--The House of Princes--you elites, Convene in secret councils to review Our royal system; but we did not think Your minds would come to such conclusions. Do Explain yourselves/ so we do not all shrink/ From your hopes/ before they're set afloat to sink Or sail. And if you do convince us, still, That we may better understand your will, I say our Justan, though no longer king, Should temporarily be our leader, till Whatever must be done to fuse this thing You speak of, is completed. We can Not be expected to expel the ring As we loosen our bowels with fibrous bran. Us'ly a revolution fills the span Brian A. J. Salchert
