A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
ALL BOOKS ON HOLD - "Right now I'm reading" technical papers until cross-eyed # Radical Acceptance~~~~ the WAR of ART >>song lyrics (always) Good to Great....and usually some heady shit, way beyond my comprehension.

In bed I like to read:
Only until I'm dating again.

My favorite story of all time is:
The one about a child throwing starfish back in the ocean. Both movie versions of "A Little Princess"

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Wikipedia, Googled items, Oprah, Sh*t my dad says (Twitter)...here and there News snippets on my phone. subscribe to Scientific America, Oprah, Discover, Smithsonian and budget travel magazine (hey a girl can dream ;-) Fast Company, Inc.,

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
The lessons I take too long to learn. The lessons I take too long to unlearn...

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
You really don't know nearly enough. And even when you know, it won't be nearly enough.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Peace Train -Cat Stevens ~~ Ain't No Reason -Brett Dennen ~~ Carnival -Natalie Merchant ~~ Nothing Man -Pearl Jam ~~ Like a Stone / I am the Highway - Audio Slave ~~ Sarah McLachlan -Fallen ~~~ The Birds-Turn! Turn! Turn! ~~~ One out of 5 Pink Floyd songs ;-)```` Semi-Charmed Life (for awhile) 3rd Eye Blind

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Who ever would possibly make one less mistake from reading it.
