Why do all your Powr Mastrs characters wear gloves?
Gloves communicate separation and protection for the hands, which are tools of work, but also intimate communicators. You wear gloves when you do a job that is very difficult or very fine. Construction workers wear gloves, and Jackie O wore gloves. It means you are occupied, you are dignified, and you won't quite be touching the person you shake hands with. The characters in my books are all engaged in spiritual pursuits of one kind or another, and gloves hermetically focus their energy for the difficult tasks.
