[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.

Edges of Knowledge Friday 2008-12-08 - Tomorrow is Saturday, December ninth, and one place I have committed to be wants me to think of 10 goals I yet entertain. Remember, I am 59. Okay, I know this won't be easy. Let's see: 1. to grow spiritually 2. to grow mentally 3. to heal my traumatized self-image 4. to find inspiriting gainful employment 5. to render to Caesar what is Caesar's 6. to use and deepen my writing talents 7. to write at least one/ loved song lyric 8. to finish placing online 1976: my bicentennial year challenge sequence of 366 sonnets 9. to keep my online Brian's Brain/ Daily Log active until I die 10. to inhabit the stars Monday 2000-12-18 closing in on 7:30pm - Last night I wrote what I am titling for now "Silent Song": it had been coming to me grudgingly ever since my December 8th goals list. I cannot say it satisfies goal 7, but I can say it does deeply satisfy me. - Silent Song There once was a boy who found the stars/ in the heavens wide a wonder-filled place to dream and hide. Do you/ know you? Please listen. If not, why not? Please listen. Somewhere in your heart who you are has its start. Go there. Prepare. Please listen. There once was a boy who found the lines/ he was moved to draw a pleasure-bright realm to touch in awe. Do you/ know you? Please listen. If not, why not? Please listen. Somewhere in your heart who you are has its start. Go there. Prepare. Please listen. There once was a boy who found the words/ he began to see a mystical land to learn and be. Do you/ know you? Please listen. If not, why not? Please listen. Somewhere in your heart who you are has its start. Go there. Prepare. Please listen. Somewhere in your heart who you are has its start. Go there. Prepare. Please listen. 2000-12-17 by Brian Salchert Saturday 2000-12-23 nearing 8:50pm - Today's saint is St. John of Kanty. Look him up. You have heard it said: "How mysterious are the ways of God!" I say: How uncanny! Today at Chick-fil-A my humble, physical work was again/ edged with frustrations and difficulties I did not always quietly deal with. St. John of Kanty. Search him out. - Christmas at Greccio. Sunday 2000-12-24 late - Before one can be, one must first desire to be, and then must sacrifice, must "perpetually" learn; see deeply--ahead and within. Actuate. Create. Rejuvenate. ~ ~ ~ Help! Help! I am an underachiever of the worst kind. Brian Salchert --- The above was written on the inside of the back cover of The Psychologist's Book of Self-Tests, Louis Janda, Ph.D., author The Berkeley Publishing Group, publisher 1966 --- (The next entry contains my "Sonnet to Shakespeare". If you wish to read it, see sw00606usabys in August 2007 archive.) Monday 200-12-25 about 9:40am - Welcome, Welcome, Saviour Jesus, Lord. Welcome, Welcome, Holy One, adored. - Two truths about love: 1. If your love for another is such that you feel you must possess that person, your love is evil. 2. You cannot say you love someone if you are not willing to let that person go. 5-6-97 4:22am - Jesus, Lord, I seek no miracle other than the strength, persistence, and wisdom needed to render to Caesar what is Caesar's and to do ever and everywhere the will of your Father, my Creator, through the graces of The Holy Spirit. Thank You, Your difficult servant, Brian Arthur Salchert Wednesday 2000-12-27 - This morning I resume taking my Actonel. Monday 2001-01-01 10pm - Since so often when suddenly frustrated I/ revert to using unholy expletives, why, God, do You even want to tinker with me? I see no way I can be fixed. I am just a perennial failure, and that is that. Oh, yes, I will keep trying/ to do what is right, what pleases You; but my inability/ to be perfect, I am afraid, will always raise the reptile in me. It has gotten so I do not know whether/ to laugh or cry/ about it, God. Oh, for a gentle breeze, a quiet walk. Tuesday 2001-01-02 7:45pm - And So There Is Love Hope sailed out like a life-saving rope, like the deep-seeing eye of a telescope, like a vigorous message from an envelope, hope sailed out. And then there was love, love, love, love. And then there was love. Faith reached in like a heavenly wraith, like a heart-changing touch of a power place, like the rising-up music by a glory braced, faith reached in. And then there was love, love, love, love. And then there was love. And love rose up like a sudden white Dove, like the Resurrection of the Savior above, like the hand of the Father for a tender shove, love rose up. And so there is love, love, love, love. And so there is love. 2001-01-02 by Brian Salchert Friday 2001-01-19 7:45am - Each moment can be a prayer. Each moment could be a prayer, if each moment each of us were able to be so aware. Saturday 2001-01-20 10:40pm - Oliva Tell me what it is that is in your heart. Tell me why it was we had to part. I know you may not want to; I know I should not care; but let your heart please tell me what is there. Friday 2001-01-26 9:10pm - Somewhere among the cinder blocks of destiny a lone eagle courses through a rivered canyon. = = = Brian A. J. Salchert
