Charles has a compulsion to make plans for any possibility he can think of.  And he can think of very many things.  He was very bookish as a young man, very brooding.  People did not make sense to him, even his own family.  I was the only one who considered choosing him.  He really was not ready for a partnership.  But we had all run out of time, and he had chosen to act, whatever the cost to himself.  So I chose to help him.  It was a good choice.
