This book is dedicated to Lynn Denise Krupey and it’s about the love we discovered and shared. It’s also about my quest to overcome shyness and to find love. What makes things complicated is that I have always been paralyzed by shyness. I was told and it seems to be the case that the guy has to ask the girl/lady out and not the other way around. This seems brutally unfair and problematic for a shy guy. Who came up with that rule anyway? Why?
In this quest to find love, I was successful. I fell in love more than once. The first girl I ever loved was named Celta. I learned on New Year’s day of 1991 that she died. I didn’t think I could stop crying. I was able to heal and find love again.
It is possible to overcome shyness and to find love. I was very successful in this regard. I’d love to tell you that story. It’s a love story about two people Lynn and Bruce. Two poets. Two people in love who wanted a normal life. If you thought that shyness was the only challenge in our lives, unfortunately, you would not know the full story. Anyway, I was in love. I was totally, completely, madly, in love.
