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.

Hugs, goodbyes and doors gently closing.

This is my last week with many of my long-term community health clients, whose services are moving to the private sector. I'm leaving many homes and relationships for the last time. A large part of my working life is changing. The good news is I have another job in public health to switch to, also in the community sphere which I love, in short-term post-acute care.
