The lovely and talented Fiona at Confessions from the Home Office has tagged me with a very interesting challenge: to write my memoir in six words.
If you look at her post, it provides some of the background about where the idea originated. But basically, the idea is to sum yourself up in six words or less, post it, and then tag someone else:
- Write your own six word memoir.
- Post it on your blog.
- Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to this original post if possible.
- Tag five more blogs with links.
You’ve seen my blog(s). Six words is not tons. I am, to say the least, wordy. So I thought about it, and here’s what I came up with to describe myself:
Equal parts fear, laughter, and dreaming.
I think it describes me fairly well. Anyone who knows me knows of my close personal relationship with fear, as it relates to people I love and control over situations in my life, not to mention bugs, praying mantises, and bodies of water that are not swimming pools. But they also know I laugh loud and long and often, and they know I have moved from place to place situationally in my life in pursuit of many a cockeyed dream.
Actually, some would say I chase dreams to escape my fears and then laugh when it all goes horribly, terribly wrong. That’s probably good, too.
So now, it’s my turn to tag others. So I am tagging
How would you describe yourself in six words?
