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.

Good morning. This is a man who has made many wrong choices, however unintentionally. Can those choices be blamed on person- ality flaws, mental disabilities, unfounded fears, and so on? Perhaps. Good morning again. This is a man, being imperfect, who can't say he will not continue to make wrong choices, however many right choices he also makes. Quite often/ choices are made, not because one desires to injure oneself or some other, but because of a need to explore, to learn, to better understand oneself. But it is possible to do the latter in relatively safe ways. Good morning. - I am not going to go into the implications of what I have written, nor am I going to give examples. They are simply thoughts worth pondering. - Alas, risk is a penchant of mine which/ has been obsessive at times. That is one of the "reasons" I am drawn to the making of poems. "Madman" is one of the numerous nicknames I've had. That was in the last decade of the last century. I did not attempt to discover why I was so labeled. § Due to the updating I'm enmeshed in, an essay on E. A. Robinson has been sitting in draft for days over at my Rodingeedaddee blog. Had I been able to avoid visiting blogs where intriguing discussions of literature occur, I would have finished the updating days ago; but I do not want to avoid those blogs. Earlier I read "Classical Music Between Adorno and Bourdieu" at Robert Archambeau's samizdatblog, a post which is also about poetry and history. There are approximately a dozen blogs I visit regularly. Until this year I had kept myself deleteriously isolated. Even if I am always merely tolerated by those whose blogs I visit, I need the knowledge they share. § PM 12:04 - For the next five days (including today) the weather will essentially be non-weather. § Entered a fill-in-the-blanks Spicer/Lorca poem try-it// on Jonathan Mayhew's blog. I doubt/ any word I used/ is right. § Before 10 PM I visited Detainees, and while there I took a link to another post on that blog. As I was reading, my security system lost it. Got it to working again, but when I tried to get back to my blog via the backspace arrow, the screen froze. Had to turn my computer off using the toggle on the surge protector. Not sure what caused the problem. - - Brian A. J. Salchert
