Six Word Memoir



For Sale: baby shoes, never worn: Hemingway thus summed up his life in six words. I have been assigned to try my hand at something similar! Hurray!
I have been tagged by Beth. As I told her, I am highly honoured to have been the recipient of this little project. It does makes one feel part of the grander scheme of things, blogwise.
Here are the rules as I received them:

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 who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4. Tag five more blogs with links.
5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!


My six word memoir is:

Migratory bird, winging it through life.

I am new to blogging and although I read a lot of blogs, I do not, sadly, have five people to tag. I have tagged Beth at moredoors, and Tracey at quietpaws.
I hope I did this right!

I knew you would do well with the memoir. What a beautiful way to sum it up. I feel so fortunate to have found your blog--I'm not even sure how I found it, but I enjoy your writing very much.

Aw, Beth, thank you :) You're too kind! Like I said before, I've got family members in Ireland that now read your blog and love your words (the picture of the Tree stood out for sure) I definitely think your blog is one of a kind.
Texican- I'm really pleased you like my six words. I'm on my way over to your blog! I'll say hi when I get there :)
Beth- glad you liked the tag. I'll also head to your blog to see your memoir.

Please look around, explore my writing, leave a crumb:
I welcome comments and thoughts.
