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. Read more about six.

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

Life, creation of an Artist's heart.

by Lee.9.3 on April 17, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This idea was not originally my own but from a song lyric: "This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist's heart" from the song Colored People by DC Talk. I changed it to what I feel appropriately encapsulates the planet, full of life. And to me, life is the creation of an Artist's heart: intricate, purposeful, full of love and beauty, & blessed.
