An explanation:
why my blog is called “arrange whatever pieces come your way”.

A few years ago, I read a book from the library called
        “Not Quite What I Was Planning”
              Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure
from the editors of Smith Magazine.

Here are a couple of my favorite memoirs from this book,
both of which I have used on a scrapbook page about me:
  Working with what God gave me – David Schmoyer
  Became more like myself every year – Eddie Sulimirski

And, a quote by author Virginia Woolf
which I have adopted for my blog
    “Arrange whatever pieces come your way”,
which isn’t my six-word memoir, but could be:
   “arranged whatever pieces came her way”.

What specific pieces do I arrange (other than my days, my life)?
     Scrapbooks and quilt-like comforters.

So, that’s my explanation.

What’s your six-word memoir?
