Write also offers diverse ways to express your ideas. You can write a journal, a textbook, a novel, poetry and much more. You can discover and organize your thoughts in so many ways. Develop your own writing style, choose from a wide range of genre and pick topics about all aspects of life. These days, you can easily publish your book or just preserve it somehow. You can write alone or work with others.
If you are gifted or trained you can capture many ideas in the from of images. This art is ancient but you still have room to add your own creations. Get inspiration from your surroundings and experiences as well as other artists. This can actually be an excuse to visit galleries.
Maybe your hand can not express what your mind can see but you can take advantage of cameras. Photography has been here for some time now, preserving memories from as far back as 1926. Use the camera to capture your own view of the world.
