[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 2005-07-25 Monday 11:05pm cc - As aggravated as I can get at my least mistake; as sharply as my inability to be perfect/ irks me, I would not want to have a chip implanted in me that would make me "perfect". Where there is no challenge when it comes to improving one's ways of doing, there is no joy. . However, because I have so many ailments, I might accept the implantation of a medical chip. 2005-07-26 Tuesday 7:51pm cc - Most significant time today: 7:32pm dc. Had gone to drr, and shortly thereafter the phone rang. I would not have answered it, but it is easy to get to now because a while back I found a way to get it closer to the drr. The caller was J. D., whom I have been thinking of nearly every day for an even longer while. I wanted to call him, but I could not summon/ his last name. During our conversation, I revealed something about me which moved him to say . . . in parting. . . . . . --after 9pm-- On the radio the Milwaukee Symphony is playing Brahm's Symphony #4. It is one of those works I relate to right from its first notes, even if I do not have the musical memory that would allow me to remember them. 2005-07-27 Wednesday 11:49pm cc - Yesterday I meant to mention that it was ADA day, meaning that on July 26th, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed; but I never quite got to it. . Today was a busy enough day, but the next 2 days are likely to be busier. Tomorrow I will be getting a third bone density scan. It's been a while since the second scan. Friday I need to see one of my case managers regarding an upcoming [see new day] --12:00am cc-- 2005-07-28 Thursday 12:02am cc - sanity session with a clinical psychologist. . Last had a bone density scan (bds) as Shands Main on 19FEB04. Today at Shands Main I had another. 2008-08-01 Monday 9:45am cc - I began my computer day at 0:32am dc. . Decided about a year ago--I'm not really sure--to place all my writings in one large volume, but have been finding it difficult to decide on a title for that volume. This morning-- while slowly thinking through my major daily prayer--my thoughts opened to my last night with Janice, and my one contact, and my last words. Just as I did not know I would be visiting her twice that day, I did not know she would pass that night, nor did I know I would inexplicably be gently moving my cursor from the bottom left of its screen to the middle top/ close upon/ the time she passed. Placing my left hand on her forehead was my one attempt-to-communicate touch, and saying "good night, Janice" concurrently/ my last words. As to my volume, among the titles I have considered are: Who Am I? and Everything Wants to Fall on the Floor. This morning I decided I would name my mysterious opus: Good Night, Janice. 2005-08-06 Friday 9:47pm cc - 9:41pm dc - This is the day that Janice made/ what with my coming to read "Bridge Over Troubled Water" because of Bill Beckett and his closing his program, "The Caravan". with Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir", which I found and read at, and which led me to their "Stairway to Heaven" which I also read there; and then to S & G's "Bridge . . ." which I also read there; and understood why/ Janice so loved it/ as I, for the first time, really read it, my life otherwise being usually too noisy for me to care to really read/ any song. . You know, Forty-One, if the numbers tonight are trying to communicate, 9 means September, the month . . . Janice [and I] got engaged. . [ 2008-07-10 note: US Highway 41 is the major north-south highway that passes just west of my hometown. ] 2005-08-11 Thursday 10:26pm dc - Am revising Rooted Sky offline. 2005-08-19 Friday 12:51pm dc - At last I am becoming the hermit I have always wanted to be. 2005-08-27 Saturday 11"58pm cc - Thank You, Lord, for having the tallow tree's dead limb be ready for plucking. It was/ as You know/ a bit tricky, but I did manage to pull it down without causing too much damage. 2005-08-29 Monday 11:11pm dc - At 64, I am a self-displaced Wisconsin poet. 2005-09-05 Monday Labor Day 9:41pm dc - While looking for something else over the last several days, I came across--in a school notebook-- an essay I apparently began on 04SEP1985. I do not have the time to enter it here now, but I will give its title: (Poetry): "Some Thoughts About Poetry from a Fledgling Seeker of Word Magic" 2005-09-09 Friday 11:01pm dc - "Hermetics" definition today. 2005-0-15 Thursday 8:11pm dc - Over at Tripod, my year-to-year "Brian's Brain" is my . . . [journal]. Here, my "Edges of Knowledge" unplanned autobiography is. [ 2008-07-10 note: Here is ThirdAge. ] . I am abruptly again, however, leaving here. My mind has been--by tonight's program--made curious about the life of Sol and of other stars. 2005-09-16 Friday 11:31pm cc - Goin'nuts agin as I usually do when I get too stressed. This spirit of mine is just too wound up, too like a knotted ball of yarn, too like a spinning beast of yearning. . . . 2005-09-18 Sunday 9:53pm cc - If every little thing that isn't perfect gets to you, then the only way to find peace is summoning up the courage to: kill perfection. 2005-09-20 Tuesday 8:06pm dc - For the last 2 days now I've not gone out into the yard. Perhaps tomorrow. I am sure that meanwhile the weeds are laughing. 2005-09-27 Tuesday 4:00pm dc - To hell with time; to hell with perfection. They have done more to keep me stressed than anything else I can think of; and yet, not being a natural genius, yea, dumb as I am-- nay, perhaps because dumb as I am-- I find it is not possible for me to cease battling with unyielding time; for me to cease wanting untouchable perfection. 2005-10-14 Friday 9:38pm dc - Hadn't had a mosquito in here for quite some while, but yesterday--one at a time as usual--got in here, the last one when my lunch arrived. I killed each of the first 3, but I do not know if I ever killed the 4th one. . I don't know if it's the Keppra I'm taking, or what, but all of a sudden I have been consistently hitting the wrong keys on my keyboard, especially the specialized ones. . [ 2008-07-10 note: That Keppra remark is interesting in that I am still on Keppra and that this year I seem to be having more problems/ hitting the/ right keys. ] 2005-10-23 Sunday 7:54pm - The other day I found a small but scary spider spinning a web in this drr's sink. . [ 2008-07-10 note: Recently I have killed at least six different kinds of spiders in this apartment. ] - Brian A. J. Salchert 2008-07-10 ekua19
