More of The Speed of Dark

The main character in The Speed of Dark, an autistic, practices fencing to this music ...

It [fencing] is like some kinds of dance, a pattern of movement, except for not having music. I sort through the music I remember, trying to find the right music for this dance .... Sarasate's Carmen Fantasy ... perfect for the feline prowl that is Simon circling me, looking for an opening, and for my intense concentration. I never thought I could dance before -- it was a social thing, and I always got stiff and clumsy. Now -- with a blade in hand -- it feels right to move to the internal music.
