The Art of Short

6 seconds now. That’s all it takes.

For our monkey-mind to move on.

Separating core from the clutter.

Hemingway showed the way

His six-word story. “For Sale: Baby Shoes. Never Worn.”

Elegant. Emotional. Imaginative.

Can it be resurrected in modern form?

A few sparks of hope remain.

A movement: The six-word memoir

A challenge:  The six second creative

A decision: Six seconds to live. The ultimate sacrifice.

These six words of a wise friend resonate.

“Be Smart. Be Brief. Be gone”.
