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 Another View of Myself [ The following was posted in a now-dead blog on August 30, 2006. It opens with a quote from an email I had written two days before. ] "I can't get past how different I am from others, but then, I have all these strange diseases/ or aspects of them. I know I came close to being autistic. Yesterday I learned I have some traits found in those with Asperger's Syndrome, a malady linked with autism. On one site the author suggested Einstein and da Vinci were Asperger's candidates. Hmm--! In reading some of my 1976 sonnets again, I did note how frenetic I can be sometimes. Is my epileptic brain to blame? Not sure. I do have tantrums and fit spells. I do get obsessed. I do get overly enchanted with and protective of/ what I/ string together in my space. I can rather easily be, or seem to be, aloof. Numbers fascinate me. Everything fascinates me. Of course, words do. Which brings up . . . the 'Language Poets'. Spent much time late last night . . . reading about them at various online sites. At one site, a site I have not completely gotten through yet, the author said that language poetry 'is not William Logan's cup of tea'. Do not know if William Logan still is, but when I studied under the late Donald Justice at UF in the mid 1980's, Mr. Logan was the head of UF's Creative Writing Program. Maybe you already know. Anyway, one of my sonnets begins: I love the sonnet, so blustery free, laughing in its chains, . . . and ends: I hate the sonnet. Don't you? Its present title is: Day 34. February 3rd - See, even though I in some ways have low self-esteem, I nonetheless am obviously, like an emotional vampire, persistently obsessed with myself." - Post Note: - While I am not always confessional, I never (sic) have been afraid to be; and/ that is because however unpleasant my revealings) I believe/ whatever I reveal about myself is an exploration of the state of being Earth-alive, and so has the potential to be generalized sufficiently to be of service to others. - There is this, however: The WWW/Internet noosphere is not--due to "necessary" ISP censorship--as open as I would prefer it to be. Therefore, even while I censor myself--grudgingly--because I would rather entertain a broader audience than not have an audience at all, the right to free speech is a major unsolved online issue.
