Six-Word Search: “Searching” Ourselves

Monday, May 7th, 2012

By Yael Roberts

Whether it’s research, Google searching, job searching, God searching, or soul-searching, we’re constantly on the lookout. We search for the right word, for the finest people, for the best possibilities, for the clearest answers. We scour databases and search engines for the information we seek. We search SMITH for Six-Word Memoirs to connect to. While often fruitful, sometimes, our searches are futile. And in today’s technologically saturated world, we often over-search until we realize that what we were looking for wasn’t too far from home after all. Below we’ve searched for your searches. Click on the linked SMITH user name for memoirs by each author.
