A very interesting site. Also I found the previous message most fascinating. Interest in human nature and its many and unique variations can occupy several lifetimes, I'm sure. To move from an accomplished fiction writer to the field of analysis is remarkable as well. I've considered that I was doing the opposite, moving from a degree in Psychological Counseling (M.A.) to a persistent desire to persue creative writing! Unfortunately, i haven't had much time to do either, yet, as my own life has been rather adventurous.
Maybe next lifetime! I'd like to read more on this site, when I have time.
