    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to aask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself annd clear your thoughs before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seemks like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost judt trying too figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
