Life in six words

I haven't done this for a while but thought that I would ask this question today:

If you could write a memoir in a six word sentence, what would it be?

Here is what I came up with this morning: Past is done, living in present.

My post is going to be short today because I have come down with a bug and feel a bit under the weather.  I am at the conference but can tell that my energy level isn't really what it usually is.  It is still snowing but nothing has accumulated today, and all the snow from yesterday is now gone.

Looking forward to your answers.  Have fun with it.

  1. Mine for last year was " Born broken and looking for glue."

    This year it would be:

    " Love yourself, forgive others, move forward."

  25. Hi,
    My son and his young family have moved in with me since about a week and a half. As I am watching him struggle with addiction and mental issues, here is my comment.
    "I did the best I could."
    Thanks,
    Adrienne

  28. "I was blind, now I see."

    Defined:

    I didn't see how I was making my life unmanageable by my own thinking and actions and reactions. The powerful gift of awareness, being able to "see" that, has been like sunlight breaking through after many dark and cloudy days.

    Love your posts and photos at Wood Hole.
