“Writing brings me back to me.” The Best Six-Word-Memoirs of the Week

From Hamlet’s famous opening line, to the answer of a simple knock-knock joke, it seems we are always asking or being asked: “Who’s there?” This week’s featured Six-Word Memoirs evoke a strong sense of identity and its importance.

Simplest Truth: “Writing brings me back to me.” – Stephanie Tor
Biggest Self-Exploration: “Sumo wrestling’s checked off bucket list.” – marymc
