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.

Peace on her shoulders like sunbeams.

She visits quite often, that place when where she is and where she is supposed to be collide. Where no one questions her. Where she doesn't question her identity. Where she sees life straight through to the horizon.

I don't know if I've ever been there. I often feel as if there's somewhere else I should be, something else I should be doing. A constant pull.
The closest I seem to get is witnessing her moments.

And that is enough.
