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 e18 Has come. Great Moiland shall not have a king, But kings; for while the source of power yet springs From Justan, people, soon the source of power, As I have said, will spring from you. What things Will then occur, what roses then will flower, What thorns, shall be/ your responsibilities. With Aethea volcanic at this hour And Urop solid once again, and these Fair stahts uncharged potentialities, The grave, internal revolution, here To be officially begun, is fear Transmuted into acts by which this land Shall save itself, or die. And there's no bier More sad to gaze at or to understand Than one which holds a nation, because it Walked on too proudly to extend its hand, Because it could not change--for lack of wit, Because its people were divorced from it." With this, the bold and fiery Hugh again Moves back/ to take his place among the men Of/ The House of Princes, while on the ledge, Where Saul and Parth were watching these/ when I last looked, only Saul remains/ to wedge ----- human flesh in the Eribon spur, To speculate; and now, standing/ near the edge Of the royal platform, Seth, stirring the air Aimlessly, speaks, sharply questioning: "Were We, were we less--these princes and I-- For not seeing, for not understanding why Our Moiland would profit by change? Yes; For the mind of Man progresses, and the eye Of rule must watch, so the rule may progress, Not lag/ too far behind. Our present king, Good representatives, who will address You now, is yet/ best for us. Let ayes ring For him, as Yuston suggests." "Aye." "Your king." "When, in this Age of Crises, kingdoms fall, Their bodies burned beyond reclaim, recall, And mankind suffers for mankind's mistakes, Our duty's not to weep upon a pall; But build from/ what is--for our children's sakes. I thought there was a glory in my throne Which would not/ be removed: that Justan wakes And sleeps; and yet is so admired in bone, In heart, that no man would/ think to groan Brian A. J. Salchert
