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.

Fifty-three and I'm a calendar girl.

by DynamicDbytheC on December 21, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Under the Questions Category, Wench asked who would like to be part of a 2013 "six-y" ladies calendar. I said I was in. I submitted a photo of the last bike tour that James and I will ever get to ride together. For my
50th birthday, he took me to the Blueridge Mountains of
Virginia (home of the famous Believe hat knitter). The day before my 50th, we rode some extra miles and came across "Over the hill lane."
So here I am at 53 years old as "Miss September." Thank you Wench.
