years go by

I’m starting a section of the “being in Time” Area of titled “days go by,” which is a rubric of resignation and understated sense of uncanniness. But the section itself will be largely short posting-like reactions to news of whatever week I feel like reacting to. It won’t be about capturing our historicality
(I expect).

I note that here because an interesting result of searching my blogs, years past, for the phrase ‘days go by’ turns up numerous postings—mostly not titled “days go by,” but most related to this blog, though not all from this blog. (I got tired of the rubric, for the most part, after 2011.) 

It all shows a sense of Self interest that is creatively oriented, rather than egoistic. This is useful for the “summer constellation” project. They can be made into an interesting confessional sequence.

So, I’m listing the old “days go by” posts below in improvised order, non-chronological, vaguely echoing the continuum of The Project, retrojected to ordering those postings made years before The Project began (though I refer to “the perpetual project” in past years, before I had lots of time to devote to it). 

Some of the postings have been earlier listed with “sundry gardening” (“s.g.” at the end of a title link below: 4 of those); some were earlier listed with the “writing lives” project (“w.l.”: 5); half were earlier listed only at their blog location.
