[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.

Just before noon today I finished reading Albert Gelpi's essay "The Genealogy of Postmodernism: Contemporary American Poetry" which is at but was originally published in The Southern Review Summer 1990 pp. 517-541. For one seeking a brief, incisive overview of Romanticism, Modernism, Postmodernism, and Neoromanticism, this is an essay to read. Near this essay's conclusion, the author of it takes a stance. Your opinion of that stance lies outside the value of the essay. I have been convinced by it, however, to learn more about Fanny Howe. - Today the sky is clear, the air a bit breezier and/ cooler. My heater is set at 70, and has heated this place to 75 several times, the last at around 3pm. - Yesterday evening I went to Ted Berrigan's EPC page. I've been there before, but--anyway, when I read section 3 of his "Sunday Morning" I fell into a laughing jag so hard I had to stand up. That wigged-out guy comes straight at his reader. Part of what made his depiction there so humorous to me had to with the connection I made between it and an old Catholic incense ceremony I often witnessed during my elementary school years. For some reason I was never quite able to identify, I didn't like the smell of incense. - Douglas Messerli also has a page at EPC, and late this afternoon I read two of his essays there, the second of which Albert Gelpi mentioned. The first one reveals how Messerli's life was saved by the ROTC. It reminded me of my boy scout camping days and the night I happened to be near the main cabin while a not so pleasant act was being forced upon resident there/ and I asked to be let in, but was told they could not allow that. Messerli's 1987 thoughts on "Language" poetries is the other. - "The Poetics of Stillness" an interview with Fanny Howe by Patricia Vigderman Brian A. J. Salchert
