I have labelled my non-literary projects “social martial arts” and “emotional kung-fu”. One is a kind of negotiation of how energy will be used in social situations. The other is how it will be allocated in one’s own soul; energy placed in a system acts to organize that system so, in other words, it is a project of enhanced personal self-control. I am only at the beginning.
