I want to share a particularly entertaining and thought-provoking book with you. Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure is a gem. Part of the book’s description is, “Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, Not Quite What I Was Planning is a thousand glimpses of humanity—six words at a time.”

It’s amazing the way short little sentences can be used to sum up big ideas.


My husband and I get a kick out of reading these six-word gems to each other. We even signed up for the Six Word Memoirs web site where you can post your own little literary creations and read the clever posts of others.

My six-word memorialization of 2014 is

“Knitted my way through every adversity.”

I hope you’ll go to your locally owned book store and ask for the book. You’re sure to enjoy it.

Happy New Year!
