“You are somebody’s sunshine. Burn bright.” The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week

Best Sixes ending 20141212 imageThe sun guides our days and influences our lives. As daylight hours wane and winter sets in, this week’s Sixes showcase our intrigue with the sun. It can be a figurative beacon (“You are somebody’s sunshine; burn bright.”), a literal guide (“Following the sunset along Route 66.”) or a visual reward (“Sundogs, colored ribbons in the sky.”). With its constant return, the sun energizes both our world and our words. —Shauna Greene
