The Story Edition – Texture Tuesday

Over at Beyond Layers we have been focusing on stories – our own, and photos that tell a story……

Kim asked us to use just six words to express our own story……an idea originally started here at Smith Magazine, where folk were asked to create a six word memoir some years ago for a short period, but it is still going strong.  There are some amazing memoirs – funny, sad, deeply personal, confronting and just plain clever.  Initially I thought I might not be able to do this, but it is truly addictive, I keep counting words, and I have written heaps,  some of which I shall share below.

Promise I’ll stop procrastinating on Monday

Beyond Layers, Challenging creations, like-minded players

etc etc………try it yourself, it is quite thought provoking and fun.

We also had to post a photography with a story – this is mine.

Posting this for Texture Tuesday, Beyond Layers and the Creative Exchange.

  3. Full-on dig this! Really gets a view of the heart of the matter, and your getting around to stop procrastinating on Monday brought a smile,. Thx! I mean, every day ends in “y”, fine so long as it’s not always the (why) question. Monday works. You can always revise that Sunday evening, too. LOL

  9. I am not one for predictability, except I always respond. My primary art is to confound and confuse the intellect, but not the spirit, until it lies down at my feet.

    If I am ever going your way and looking for a big garden to wander in I’ll try to remember you and ask if I can call in on my way out, or my way back home. How would I know which until the day? 🙂

    There are creatures in Aus that will never be seen if I don’t get out and see them.
