Poetry. I write poetry and short stories. My favorite part of doing it, just for me, is that I do it by hand — just pen and paper. It’s white space for my mind. I’m usually alone when I write. Writing poetry, and writing in general, allows me to slow down and give serious consideration to the things that float through my mind and actually render them in a format I can revisit or share with others. And it’s just beautiful. Writing is beautiful.
