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.

Autobio Internet poets Will this really be about me? I am not sure. Maybe tomorrow I will know. Maybe never. Fissures mar my spirit. That I can say. Yet, it is more likely resilience will build in me (if the universe allows it to) than the dissolution of what is left of who I am. Let no one feel one drop of sadness, for where I am and am heading toward/ I freely choose. Life, even without anyone but myself, I shall ever prefer to no life. As it is, the only reason I still am an Earth-alive sappy human/ is: the love of other humans. I have probably had 4 times the lives a cat supposedly is able to have. Will this really be about me? I am not sure. - Someone or some organization ought to conduct a census of American poets and publish a list thereafter. Perceived worth should not be a consideration. Only this question need be asked: If you believe you are a poet, what is your poet name? My sense is there are far more of us than is generally thought. I know some would not answer my proposed question. Some might even consider it an insult. Poets who are widely known should, perhaps, not even be approached. [ AM 9 24MAY07: Maybe someone in the literary blogosphere is making a list. ] - - [ PM 8:22 24MAY07: Below is a note from the home page I once had on Tripod. ] - The computer revolution notwithstanding, there are millions of humans known only by those few humans who know them. More to the point, the same can be said of millions of humans who have an online presence. I am these days such a human. Here I sit, typing this, typing that, as if I am writing to billions; but barely even a dozen a day read my words. I am as one in a plasma cell at this 11:17 passing PM minute, wholly available; yet wholly alone. It is a strange universe, it is, it is. Good night. - September 20, 2006 - Brian Salchert American Academy of Poets - Randall Mann on John Ashbery Brian A. J. Salchert
