I'm a very nervous, shy person.
In general, questions are fine; you can always seize upon the parts of them that interest you and concentrate on answering those.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson

I have been a frequent air traveler since I was a few months shy of my sixth birthday, when my parents packed me off to boarding school two plane rides away from home.

At the root of the shy temperament is a deep fear of social judgment, one so severe it can sometimes be crippling.

I was born in 1949, and by the time I was 10, I figured out that my hope chest was not aimed in the same direction everybody else's was. And that life was going to be very, very complicated. And that I could either be provocative and declamatory, or shy, retiring and scared.
