“I’m leaving in the morning, so let’s not be shy…”

🎶 Ani DiFranco – Shy 🎶

I’m all for the slow dance of delayed gratification – in fact, I’m at expert at it, in the right company – but frankness also goes quite a long way. Life is so thrilling, so full of potential; why waste time holding back, pretending we don’t have needs and desires? There’s no room for shyness in my world; I’m far too eager to experience it all to let bashfulness hold me back.
