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.

Sorting through calling cards takes time.

Our morning walks used to take about a half hour. They are usually brisk with a few stops to greet the sights, sounds, and smells of our neighbourhood.

With the arrival of Fall, there is that expected plethora of smells, mixed with calling cards from other neighbourhood canines. The pace isn't as brisk, but I don't mind a leisurely stroll with a hundred stops ... really, I don't. It gives me time to just be.
