Six-Word Story



Published by


Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  1. I love this Mark. Your daughter took a beautiful photograph too. Does she enjoy photography? I wonder if she’s a future pro behind the lens capturing life!

    I definitely agree with you about the easiest path. For some reason, it reminds me of that classic saying from a parent to a child, “If everyone else jumped off a cliff – does that mean you’d do it too?” So many people take the ‘easy road’ in life instead of the ‘high road.’ There’s a whole lot less traffic on that high road though, ha ha!

    Challenge may not be easy but the results are always worth it. Besides, who wants to be like everyone else, anyway? 😊

    Sending love to you and your family, Mark. Love your thought-provoking posts!

    1. Great comments, Holly. Thank you so much. Yes, my daughter loves photography, though her aspiration is robotic engineering. Perhaps it will be a wonderful hobby for her later in life as well.
