[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.

[ last modified: 2008-10-17 ] Seminary (1961/62 Jesuit Novitiate poems) Recently I defined myself as "the eclectic nonentity"; and also recently, after a visit to/ my primary doctor, I said to a seemingly healthy tall stranger standing in the waiting room: "I am a leftover." The central reason I have chosen to share Seminary is: what it reveals about me as/ a developing human. During that time I was both in a state of passionate misguided religiosity and a state of self-awareness denial. At this moment, when my continuance remains a deepening mystery, my neutered broken-back hollow-bone weak-bladder short-circuit-prone dimininshed body breeding a vast emptiness, I return to that confusion I was because I need to, need to understand it more fully in order to help me determine where/ I go from here. As I/ have often revealed, my life has been marked by numerous mystical events. Whoever/ it is I am, was supposed to be, or yet will be given the op/por/tunities to be, my going back to that time prior to the mystical day of my going forth from that Jesuit complex in Minnesota/ is essential. The day I left/ a teacher Jesuit came upon me in one of the walkways outside the large chapel where Mass was being celebrated. After asking me what is equal to asking: "Whither/ goest thou?": he told me to kneel, and he gave me a blessing. Being/ the being I am, I accepted his blessing as a sign from the Holy Spirit that a different mission thereafter/ would be mine to fulfill. In some ways I have fulfilled it; in other ways I've turned from it. It is time to put fear aside, and put aside with it my obstinate clinging/ to desires to know. It is time to enter the tabernacle of/ beyond-understanding. I see I just countered myself. Crazy is as crazy does. Perhaps encountering again this Brian who was/ will be a walk into/ the tabernacle of/ beyond-understanding. - - 1 Aerual - 2 Spiriel - 3 Manuol - 4 Jesus Bound - 5 Untainted Ewe - 6 Ode to the Mid-month - 7 On the Feast of Saint Agnes - Sunday February 10, 2008: Appears I have run out of seminary poems with dates on them. Therefore, if I continue this project, it will be with reminiscences. - The Society of Jesus in the United States ~ Brian A. J. Salchert
