Six words

2/28/07 Take an honest look at myself today. What debris needs to be let go or released?

I used this journal post to propel me forward. To do the things I have needed to do but for some reason I have been dragging my feet. There was no better way to take an honest look at myself then through Joan’s challenge. Several days ago joan tagged me with a meme which originated from bookbabie  to write a six word memoir! The idea originated at Smith, The American online magazine edited by Larry Smith . Smith used Hemingway’s example ….In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway bet ten dollars
that he could write a complete story in just six words. He wrote: "For
Sale: baby shoes, never worn."  He won the bet……
Then Smith compiled his readers six word life stories in a book titled Not Quite What I was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs By Famous and Obscure. Check this book out at Amazon. There is a great video on this page illustrating peoples six word memoirs. Here are the rules..

1. Write your own six word memoir

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like

3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere

4 .Tag five more blogs with links

5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!


Be naked, laugh ,love ,play everyday.

Okay now I tag Kateri , Nina, Lisa ,Elizabeth ,and my fifth tag goes to all those who read this post. If you feel compelled leave your six word memoir in the comments for others to read.

    What a wonderfully profound memoir, I knew you would come up with a great one.
    be naked… that alone speaks volumes to anyone struggling with ‘self’:)
    and the debris hit ME today… so much that my blog page is currently ‘white’
    didn’t see that coming 🙂
    I love visiting here, there is always so much to ‘ponder’…
    thank you so very much for participating.
    ps… ( I hope nina plays… I just got one of her precious ‘wisdom windows’ in my mailbox, and it is gorgeous)
    love you susan, hope you are physically on the mend too
