“Very few things actually age gracefully.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

Best Sixes of the Week 2014 09 26Time is intangible, yet always present. It ebbs and flows depending on the stage of life we find ourselves in. This week’s Sixes explore the many ways time impacts us. A certain hour of the night can bring on a rush of thoughts (“Midnight hour murmurs contemplative, reflective perspectives.”), and sometimes it takes years to put it all in perspective (“So that’s what seven years does.”). These Sixes make it hard to resist rethinking how we view time.
