don’t be shy

I spent so much of my life feeling so shy.

I wonder why that was…. now.

It’s not something that everybody would know.

Jenny calls me a showboat…I guess that I got over it.

Jenny was really shy….really shy.

She’s not so shy anymore, either.

I guess that when you get a little more mature and have some commitments and things that occupy your attention, you get over some of that shyness.

But there was something that I carried around for a bunch of years that made me pretty darn shy.


Hard to say what it was….but shyness sure gets in your way.

It’s not a good thing to be silenced by shyness.

The only good thing about shyness and sensitivity (etc., etc…..blah, blah, blah) is that it gives you some quiet time to listen to guys like Cat Stevens Yusuf Islam.

You can sure waste a lot of years feeling shy.

Don’t be shy.
