Getting there is half the fun ... or is it all?

Today's post is prompted by the Tuesday meme, Heads or Tails. Today's prompt is Heads: "Getting There". To join the fun, click here - you know you want to, go ahead, do it.

My last two posts have been about Mile 4 ... I'm stretching today's prompt to get there, well, sort of ... I'm getting there, just keep reading (please).

This morning, I read about a writing challenge in the online Smith magazine, where they asked readers to describe their life in six words. This was apparently prompted by the question posed to Hemmingway and his response, "For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn". So that got me thinking, naturally, of what six words I would use to describe my life.

My first thought was, "ha ha ha, but I digress" ... which was closely followed by, "unconditional love, much laughter, healing tears". I would digress further, but this post is about "getting there" and is going to "get there" by asking a question ... what are your six words? Do tell and comment below ...

Grins and giggles to all and remember that

“Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!”

OK, OK, I must stop!!! This is fun and addicting ;-) Now watch, the rest of the day at work, the whole 45 minute drive home, and the entire night I'll be thinking of more of these ;-)
