Love | Source

This book celebrates the

"warm and fuzzy

and cold and hard and bitter

and sweet and euphoric

and torturous world of the

hopelessly romantic heart."


A kiss can write a secret.

- Annmarie Howell

It never hurt as good again.

- Marc Ecko

Found true love; married someone else.

Words | Source

Butterflies still kicking after ten years. - Lisa Taylor

People can't want what they want.

- Dr. Drew Pinsky

Will always follow you. On Twitter.

- Mircea Lungu

May I have the last dance?

- Robert Hass

Never should have bought that ring.

She kissed me and said yes.

Married Russian. Brush teeth with vodka.

"Brilliant in their brevity, these insightful slivers of passion, pain, and connection capture every shade of love and loss-six words at a time." - SMITH Magazine

I hope you have enjoyed this peek into the new book Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak: by Writers Famous and Obscure. Let me know what you think of it and who you will be remembering to give your love to (in six words!)

My anniversary is tomorrow; we were married on January 14th, 1989. That is twenty years for us! That deserves some special thought and a return visit to add my own love story in six words!

Thanks for visiting!

      My six-word memoir using the power of three words times two: Always and forever, forever and always. I believe in the kind of love that lasts for an eternity.

      Wow married for twenty years. A love story in 6 words seems a little difficult task to me :-). I hope you would like to visit my lens on Love and Heartbreak.

      Internally sourced love is not dependent on the hug for its survival; it is the hug. Don't just give and receive love, be love.

      Six words for love and heart break, that I believe to be simple, yet very strong in my life. In The Moment, At The Moment!
