Lovely wallflowers blooming...

While politely observing a shy person this morning at ye olde overpryced coffee shoppe, it (the obvious generalization) occurred to me... it's not that shy people don't want attention, on the contrary, they crave it. They just don't know how to handle attention. Shy people, I can help. I know how much you take in and how hard it is to find a present-tense interface with reality that meets your excruciatingly high standards. Let's talk... behind digital curtains if we must, but really, as attractive as it may be, the shy must be overcome.
