One regret. Six words. What's yours?

I'm curious about Six-Word Regrets because we're approaching the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, a time for Jew—and of course people of any faith—to ponder notions like renewal, regrets, atonement. At the same time, SMITH Magazine is part of a series of shows called \"With Regrets...\" that the Jewish cultural nonprofit, Reboot, is putting on in LA (9/22) and NYC (9/27). At each show, performers will tell personal stories of regrets. I'll be reading Six-Word Regrets from the event’s Facebook Wall ( and wanted to put the challenge out to the amazing Six-Word scribes on SMITH a well.

More on the shows:

And the accompanying project called 10Q in which anyone answers a series of questions that prompt you for short personal reflection (sneak preview: the last question asks for a Six-Word response).
