Wowser and dang! Taking on that work from a colleague was something I really wanted to do, but it was rough going for most of the weekend. I had to abandon blogging, cooking Saturday night dinner, and ditch church to get it all done by tonight, but I managed to do it. Yay! I wanted to do it because it involved editing chapters of a book about the connection between religiousness/spirituality and health, a topic that I would like to edit more frequently, but I have no experience in that particular field. I would like to get out the "medical editing" pigeonhole somewhat, but I think it'll be hard to do without having something on my resume. I've written on Al-Anon recovery, but that's not the same thing as editing a meta-analysis of studies on the connection between religiousness/spirituality and health. Actually, I don't know how to read such analyses of scientific papers, so I asked my colleague if I could read the final chapter, where the writer wraps up an summarizes the who shebang (why isn't there a "hebang," BTW?). It will be interesting to see what the studies say.

On another note, it is sort of weirding me out that there isn't at least a handful of people (whom I don't know) who would be interested in my experiment and in reading and commenting on my blog by now, about the halfway point in the venture. I guess it bears out what my pastor is always saying, that most folks are too seduced by the world and it's trappings to pay much, if any, attention to their relationship with and growth in God. I hate to generalize like that, and I know that my lack of promoting my blog and my desire to remain anonymous are playing a role in my "invisibility here, but I know personally that there are lots of who *are* interested in this subject, so where are you???? Come out of hiding and wave so I can see you!
