I discovered a phenomenon called the Six-Word Memoir Project, an endeavor of Larry Smith, creator of Smith Magazine, in which readers submit six-word entries on a variety of topics.
In this case, as a reader, you have six words, of your choosing, to use in crafting a statement that best captures the essence of whatever topic is the subject of the memoir. Since we're at the end of the year, our memoir project this time is Your Year in Review. Looking back over 2015, how would you best convey your experience of the past year using only six words?
"Never ending series of office parties" is one way to sum it up. :)
You can make it about your personal life, choose to make a statement about the world in general and your observation of it, comment on politics, the economy, the elections, etc. What aspects of this past year stand out for you?
As for me.....
When I reflect on my own life this past year, in many ways it's far better than I imagined it would be, even though it looks little like I imagined it would look. The older I become, the more I appreciate, and am truly grateful for, the simple things in life.
So, here is mine:
New house, bob, dresses and Šarka.
How about you?
What did this past year boil down to for you?
That is it.... for this year!
Before the calendar turns a new leaf over, before the social networking sites get flooded with messages, before the mobile networks get overcrowded by people sending their midnight "xoxo"'s .... let me take a quiet moment out to wish you a wonderful, happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
