Six Word Memoir Meme

Here's an interesting meme from Blonde Momentos. It was started by bookbabie and is based on the book Not Quite What I Was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure.

The idea is to sum up your life in six words. No more. No less.

It's an interesting concept, but as I started to give it some thought, I realized that the name of my blog was my six word memoir! The name of my blog actually came from a poem/memoir that I wrote about my grandfather. You can read more about that in this entry. For some reason that title made sense to me for what I wanted to write about. I did worry originally that it was too long for the name of a blog. But I seem to have grown used to it. And now I'm quite happy to find out that it's the perfect six word memoir.


If you'd like to play along...

1. Write your own six word memoir

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like

3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post (bookbabie)

Don't you just love it when you discover you've already done the assignment? :-D

That poem you wrote for your grandfather is so beautiful and moving.

I'd wondered about the name of your blog. I thought it might be from that Grateful Dead song..."St. Stephen with a rose, in and out of the garden he goes" but now I know!

Jill, yes, and thanks again for the meme.

Annie, I never thought about that Grateful Dead song, thanks for pointing that out. I'm going to have to download it and listen to it.

How perfect, enjoyed your blog and so glad you played along:)
