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.

Tea with Teo. Best tears treatment.

by Amapola on June 21, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Feeling down on a rainy day. And then my dear good friend Teo invites himself for tea, carrying the millions of hugs that he promised to bring with him. Soon after he arrives, we are laughing, hugging, and drinking more tea. And then it's all good. Really good.
