The other day a colleague asked: Leny, are you shy? She must have noticed my reticence to answer the question and so she said, "I don't know where that came from." I then said that I am not shy but I may be reserved in some contexts.

What does it mean to be shy though? Does it mean not having the confidence to talk about my next book project which is probably going to be published by June and how it has kept me preoccupied the last few weeks trying to edit the manuscript and work with the book designer? Does it mean feeling timid that I couldn't bring myself to ask my friends to read it for comments for fear that they might say it's not polished enough? Does it mean not blogging about my preparations to go to Old DominionUniversity in two weeks to speak at the Film Festival where some Fil Am films are featured? Does it mean not talking about my aching lower back because I don't want people to think I'm old?

If so, then I must be shy. Really shy.
