Remember that Nike slogan?

I had a plan for today; today did not go to plan…

I set the plan in motion, but it was a victim of timing; it was going fine until the very end, when it was scuppered by a chance crossing of paths. They weren't to know, they can't be blamed. I might not have done it anyway. And it was raining as I cycled home from Tesco; it seemed appropriate, so I didn't complain…

I'm surprised no one's figured it out; I'm not that subtle, surely.

Some people came close last term, but joked about the truth too much to realise that it was the truth, or at least close to the truth.

Still, someday…

The Burden of Introvertness

Follow-up to Ho hum from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

One of my friends seems to be going through a bit of a rough patch at the moment. I want to help, but don't know how; and if I did I still probably wouldn't because I wouldn't feel comfortable (not quite the right word, but I can't think of a better one).
That's one reason why this blog and richardwinskill.co.uk contain very little that's actually about me (in fact, I'm pretty sure my website doesn't contain anything about me, except the mirror of this blog which doesn't count…); I'm not very good at talking about myself and I lack the self confidence to really do anything to help friends other than to listen. Not that I'm saying listening to people's problems doesn't help, because it does (it's good to get things off your chest), it's just that sometimes something more pro–active is needed and that's what I can't do; a hug, talking about it over lunch, I just don't feel close enough to my friends…
Still, at least other people do; so they can help my friends in need…
