Six Words

February 14, 2008

Have you heard of Ernest Hemingway’s six word story?

For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.

He does so much with so little, and it has a lasting power. This got me thinking about my six word story.  Considering the years I’ve had in the world.  The people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve absorbed- how can I package that neatly in six worlds?  

My six words is no soul wrenching tragedy, it’s just where I am right now, and what I think to myself at the start of every new day.

I’m not done dreaming it yet.

What is your six word story?

Want to know more about the cupcakes?  They’re Red Velvet Raspberries, decorated with pink cream cheese frosting, fresh raspberries and mint leaves.  The recipe for the cakes and cream cheese are just a jump away. Now go have a lovey dovey day.
