    Today’s date is full of sixes. Not only is it the date 6/6, but the year is 2013 (2 + 1 + 3 = 6).

In numerology, the number 6 learns from others, cares for them, and teaches them. The number 6 builds communities by keeping people together. Six hold together members of the SMITH community, who challenge each other to six-offs, sixcessfully pun with 6, and condense their stories into only six words. But 6 isn’t just a number; it’s become a verb too. Below, sixers share their meta thoughts on sixing:
