Six-Word Search: “Away”

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Summer is the time to get away: from work, school, or even ourselves. Yet even the summer eventually fades and passes. People we love move on and drift far away. Soon September is here, and we’re back to running away from responsibilities before everything we’ve gotten away with catches up to us. These SMITH users have ‘a way’ with words, so let their memoirs take you away—because sometimes vacation can be as close to home as hiding under the covers.

Traveling is like running away temporarily.
