The Contra Costa Times in Walnut Creek, California published an article today that combines concepts from three of our books The Book of Myself, What I Love About You, and our new book, Picture of Me, just in time for Valentine’s Day:

Readers Pen Six-Word Memoirs About Love...

Of course the most famous six-word memoir is from Ernest Hemingway: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

I like this line from the article by Jackie Burrell:  “The very notion of a six-word memor is a perfect fit today, Fershleiser remembers thinking, “when everything is voyeuristic and confessional, and everyone blogs.”

The article is full of six-word expressions of love for cupids pondering what to say, do, or write for February 14, 2009.

But back to the six-word life memors,  I know I will want to modify this soon, but here’s mine as of today:

“Cult boy discovers freedom, makes difference.”

What’s your whole-life or the “Tales of Love” version?
