A Life... In Six Words

Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic

SMITH magazine, an online journal, has published thousands of six word memoirs. They adapted the idea from a possibly mythical challenge to Ernest Hemingway- write a story in just six words.

"For Sale: baby shoes, never worn."

We're going to talk with editors of a collection called Not Quite What I Was Planning, Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. Just a couple of examples: "Took scenic route, got in late," from Will Blythe. "I still make coffee for two," from Zak Nelson "Brought it to a boil, often," from Mario Batali.

Of course, I couldn't resist, so here's mine:

WBAI, WRVR, ATC, BBC, MLB, TOTN.

Well, more of a resume, I suppose. And we keep being told to keep those short.

* Check out more 6-word memoirs here.

I am a practicing Nephrologist(kidneys/dialysis) who had a massive stroke as the result of an infected heart valve. I underwent 5 surgeries, 120 days in the hospital, 2 months in a rehab hospital.
I now work part time and continue with physical therapy.
This has been my recent theme when talking to my patients, most who have severe chronic diseasses. My journey and my stories have helped my patients them identify with me. It has often given them the courage to continue as they know that I too have gone through painful, embarassing, and humiliating times as a patient.

Ignore it. 6)Down today, up tomorrow, repeat repeatedly. 7)Misery loves company, but I'm alone! 8)Think widdershins, shake the world up. 9)No one calls me lover, sigh. 10)My children are unfinished, I pray. 11)I am an orphan, still weeping. 12) You died too soon, Baby Girl. 13) I am bitter, life is sweet. 14)God save me from Good Intentions. 15) Hurt me and I bleed words. 16)Mama forgot to warn me about.... 17)I've learned old women are invisible.
