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.

Edges of Knowledge Thursday 2002-07-04 3:05pm - Welcome to the greatest nation on Earth, The United States of America, for what it's worth. If I were an entrepreneur, I would create my own nation; for that/ I believe/ is the only way I could fulfill (for me) the promise of "the pursuit of happiness." Life? Liberty? Yah. And don't tell me I don't know how good I've got it. I do know; and I also know I have had it good, too good, all my life. Not relevant to my "for what it's worth." Monday 2002-07-08 8:03pm - I have decided not to reveal the details, but this morning after 8/ I had to call 911 for her. She is now in SICU. Tuesday 2002-07-09 6:39pm - Janice, you, time upon time the smile of joy, I (as well as I am able) do love you; and can only guess at why you so often seem unable or unwilling to love your self/ even as I/ too often seem unable or unwilling to love my self. If I could have given you all you wanted, nay, all you needed, the sorrows abiding in our hearts would not be, would not be. But be as you wish; and God be with you, and be with me. Thursday 2002-07-11 7:42am - Why am I ever/ on the edge of knowing; so seldom/ really knowing until it's/ too late? 6:51pm - Looking for me? I say to you, traveler, do not look/ in the real world. Sunday 2002-07-14 6:39pm - My Janice When Janice was young, often she befriended those/ others were reluctant to, both for them and for herself. And I, for one, am pleased she did. And even though our lives together didn't progress as I hoped they would, and I was a sleepy-eyed disappointment, she was, and is, and will ever be my woman of night, my woman of light, my promise. - - - Dear God, You Who are always with us, even when we choose wrongly, please make our hearts such that we will be always with You. Thursday 2002-07-18 10:00pm - Janice, you, time upon time the smile of Joy, so be with God, and be with me. [ insert: - 7/12/02 Janice, it seems apparent I was not able to love you/ as well as/ I ought to have, but I did love you as well as I could and I do now/ and will continue to love you as well as I am able. Certainly Our Savior, Jesus Christ, loves us. Certainly, through Him, all are forgiven. So be in God. ] Friday 2002-07-19 7:17pm - Janice's spirit went home to heaven at 9:38pm the Shands at AGH people say-- about the time I was placing the 7/12/02 words above on this page. Definitely, I remember my cursor/ being in the lower left corner 1t 9:57pm, and that I (from an urge indefinable) slowly moved that cursor toward the top center of the screen with the angle of its rise sharpening as it went, and that I felt it represented so Janice's spirit ascending. And today I thought: So, go Janice, smile before God. I am sure He/ will be pleased. Wednesday 2002-07-24 6:55pm - The day Janice's spirit moved on, I visited her twice: once in the morning and once in the early evening. In the morning I did speak to her but not a lot, and I do not recall what I said. I do know I sat in a chair near her and silently prayed Mary's rosary. In the evening/ God gave my the courage/ to say more to her. I am certain I said what I had written on the 12th: Janice, it seems apparent I was not able to love you/ as well as/ I ought to have but I did love you as well as I could and I do now/ and will continue to love you as well as I am able. Certainly Our Savior, Jesus Christ, loves us. Certainly, through Him, all are forgiven. So be in God. And I did immediately thereafter say a "Hail Mary" to her. And although I was not with her the moment of her passing, at the time I decided to leave, I placed my left hand/ softly/ on her forehead, and said to her: "Good night, Janice." = = = Brian A. J.
