Well, by now you know the drill…if it’s Monday it must be Six Word Memoir day. And as always each week, I look to my readers to send me their own Six Word Memoir. Some weeks are bountiful and lately they’ve been scarce AND I certainly appreciate each one I receive and marvel at how clever you all are at distilling your life into just six words, not more, not less.
A special long distance thank-you to my buddy out west for his always witty and thoughtful and thought-provoking Six Word Memoirs.
