Six-Word Memoir

Describe your life in six words

one could describe in six words, what that should be.
Since some weeks six-word memoirs are spread in the blogosphere.
The starting point was probably an article in the SMITH Magazine (Slogan: Everyone has a story) about a book with six-word memoirs of prominent people from the USA, connected with the appeal to write its own story in six words.

Now it spreads with a kind of chain letter in the Internet world. Normally I have something against chain letters, but here I do not want to be so strict. It is a play, to which none is forced. One cannot win anything and no one is “punished”, if one does not want to join in.

Here are the guidelines, should you choose to participate in this yourself:

  • Write your own six-word memoir.
  • Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
  • Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
  • Tag five more blogs with links.

My six-word memoir

At 70: Prefer blogging to jogging

So far so good

So far so good

What has the picture to do with six words?
What has the labyrinth to do with your life?
What has the labyrinth to do with six words?
There you are!
In other words: As one gets the turn.

My own six-word memoir history was initiated by Kimberly Saward’s blog; she in turn was invited by Peaceful Knitting.

For continuing I would like to encourage the bloggers I know:
There is my daughter Noëmi; some companions on the labyrinthine path, such as der Stein-Flüsterer; Ilse from Austria; Els from the Netherlands; the author of the Labyrinth-Blog on Scilogs.
