six word stories

It was the blink of an eye thing that threw me into a tailspin, twice, okay three times and when I stepped foot into the hospital waiting rooms … POOF! … all of my own problems cleared.

Waiting for a life to be saved, I heard someone in my head say … “the fragility of life is over.”

I thought back with a very stern, “No, it’s not!”   Grateful it wasn’t.

Now, I’m left with this amazing little six word story that changes everything.

“Thank You” whoever you are. 


“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honor trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White
