It's an amazing morning; for the first time in about three weeks I don't have some deadline that has to be met by today, and I can actually catch my breath!
Some Stats: But first, my monthly (a bit late this month!) summary of statistics. As of this writing we have 8,336 people signed up to get notifications of these posts either via Twitter, Facebook, or directly asking for email updates here. That's not quite a hundred more than last month, when we had 8242. And we're up to 120 subscribers, an addition of 4 new members. Thanks, and welcome!
If we could double the size of the readership, would we double the number of supporters? It's probably not that simple... but it would certainly help.
And what's new: So what is it that has kept me so busy? Travel to Kentucky and Ohio (including in Wapakoneta, the home of Neil Armstrong); the Tucson Festival of Books; and talks to a group of seminarians from Wisconsin and alumni from Yale. One more review article out the door; that makes about a book's worth of writing I have done in the last 8 months. If only I had saved that all for a book of my own.
But what I really want to talk about here, behind closed doors, are two items of news from our annual Vatican Observatory Foundation Board meeting, of special interest to our paid-up members...
In order to read the rest of this post, you have to be a paid-up member of Sacred Space, and logged in as such!
