      If I’d have included all the ones about Jewish people being persecuted (formation of the SS etc.) then there wouldn’t have been space to put 1989 down.

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
    to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!
