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.

Album cover? What's that, she said.

My homage to Mr Bowie for the Jewish holiday of Purim which was this past Sunday and Monday.

One of my friend's daughters, aged ten, asks me what I'm supposed to 'be', as Purim is a time where we dress up in costume, much like Halloween.

I say, have you heard of David Bowie?
Blank look.
I say, well, David Bowie is my favourite musician and this is a famous look from one of his album covers.
She asks me, what's an album cover. Oh that's right, I say, you don't know what an album is!
