A challenge in brevity...

Today on NPR they asked a fascinating questions...can you tell your life story in exactly six words?

So, can you? It's not a very simple task...as my sister noted, "No matter what I came up with--there were important facets neglected."

My six word memoir?

And then there was light...again.

What would be yours?

I couldn't tell my life story in six words. But I've managed to tell one important story from my life in a single sentence (a much-needed exercise in brevity, since it took *six freaking blog entries* to relate how my husband and I got together!):

Sooz, blogging would grind to a halt if we could no longer ramble. I, for one, wouldn't know how to write. It was interesting reading what other's came up with on the NPR link. One day I'll have to check the books out from the library. And I enjoyed your account...as always!

Stumbled on your blog by hitting the "next blog button".

Wow, great choice of words. It makes me want to know more!

Six words? How about: Love people, trust God, be happy!
