Life in six words or less

February 18, 2008

Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

I’ve become hooked on Smith Magazine’s six word memoirs. Here are a few of my favourites

Fifteen years of therapy for this?!
Missed today while planning for tomorrow.
An artistic existence from random stuff.

What a great idea for working with groups? I occasionally use Haiku as a way of focussing on what people really want to talk about – or, as a way of evaluating or summarising a wide ranging process.
So – what would your six word or less statement be? Here are a couple I composed earlier:

Conversations matter… talking to myself again?

Be rational … always an irrational request

I’m going to tag a few people to get started…Terence, Johnnie, Lori, Matt.
