research

My research is toast. Eight years, hundreds of Reiki sessions, thousands of bits of data. Useless.

Am actually relieved. OK, can give that up, along with so many other things. Kind of wish I could start over, as a younger person. I love research. Would do it right this time: with a theoretical foundation and a standardized tool. Evidently publishers and researchers don't like one to invent a research tool. One must use a standardized tool, and I'm not really sure what that is.

Why do I blunder along, following my whims and intuition, instead of doing things the "right" way? Eight years of research useless. Well, good enough for a magazine perhaps; not a journal. Good enough for an article on what not to do.

Academia.
