I am a very optimistic, hands-on kind of person who approaches most tasks spontaneously and enthusiastically. But there is a limit to that and when problems arise, I tend to go inward to listen for new options.
I am in the process of writing a memoir of my childhood as a refugee from the former East Germany, a journey back into the often dark and frightening past. And it is also a journey of discovery of what events shaped me and how much of this past is still with me every day.
I think I'll stop now. It is a scary thing to write to an unknown reader.
