Six Word Memoir

Monday, March 3, 2008 0:25 | Filed in Life, Memes, The Pickards

Over at Stephen Lang’s site, I’ve noticed he’s trying to come up with a six-word memoir. I’m not entirely sure how you sum up your life, your achievements, your thoughts hopes and desires into just six words, but I’m prepared to give it a shot.

It’s an interesting concept — if maybe a little morbid — but here goes:

It’s how you play the game

…I’d rather look back on my life and look at moderate achievements that I can take pride in, than look back at great achievements made from trampling over others.

Well obviously I’d rather not be looking back at my life in any sort of past tense at all, and even if I was I’d rather be looking back on fantastic achievements from my view on top of an enormous pile of gold, but you know what I mean…

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    Ooooo! Six words only? That’s a toughie!

    Mine, I think, would have to be the tag line of my blog:

    Living on the edge - looking in

    The explanation, taken from my ‘about me’:

    “Living on the edge”, as the tagline says, is what I do - living on the edge of what my body allows me to do, living on the edge of doing the sensible thing, living on the edge of the fictional world in my head and looking in, and living on the edge of sanity.
