Seven Word Autobiography

Michael Vandervort recently shared with me an excellent article from the brainpickings website, which is showcasing seven word autobiographies by famous writers, artists, musicians and philosophers.

I am particularly enjoying David Byrne’s selection, partly because he has chosen to ignore the seven word rule. Here’s his contribution:

unfinished, unprocessed, uncertain, unknown, unadorned, underarms, underpants, unfrozen, unsettled, unfussy

As much as I like the article, I like the idea more, and it strikes me that you don’t need to be famous to play with this little challenge.

So – without further ado, here is my seven word autobiography, dreamed up with haste over a coffee.

Restless, in love, taking courage from uncertainty.

What’s yours?
