Six-Word Search: “Fall”

Monday, October 17th, 2011

As we move deeply into autumn, a search for the word fall in the Six-Word Memoir project reveals SMITH writers thinking about falling leaves, the end of summer, and that non-seasonal phenomenon of falling in love. It seems that we fall asleep thinking in six words, waking to find that constant things like leaves and loved ones are not so constant after all. Here are a few of our favorite “fall” sixes.
