what would it be?     read more moments

  • A perfect moment in my life would be with my dad flying me around the house while in my Superman costume when I was six.

  • 3:33 am on the 4th of August 1999, for me to remember :)

  • The day I left my hometown and got on a greyhound to persue my college education.

  • breakfast.

  • My perfect life moment happened only a couple months ago. I spent the semester travelling through Northern India with some other students. We stayed in an orphanage for 2 weeks and were encouraged to engage the children in English, so a friend and myself decided to put on a musical. We made up a fun show based on the Mario Brothers which incorporated easy American songs. The show was eventually performed in front of the entire school that the children attended. It was a huge success and I realized just how much I had come to care for these kids in only 2 weeks. But just as the kids were finishing their bow, the woman in charge of the orphanage declared that the directors (me and my friend) were now going to perform a song. We didn't know what she was talking about and my friend promptly ran out of the room leaving me alone. I had no idea what to sing. I picked a song from the Broadway show Wicked that I had just performed for my Grandmother's 80th birthday: For Good. I only chose it in the moment because I knew all the words, but as I sang, I realized just how pertinent the words were:" it well may be, that we may never meet again in this lifetime, so let me say before we part. so much of me is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me like a handprint on my heart." it was wonderful

  • When my eyes teared up the moment my son was born.

  • The one perfect moment to put in a one second film is very difficult to just think of, but I will try to do my best... I am doubting between a few... One is the moment i first met my first true love, after having talked to him for about half a year over the internet I decided to go visit him in the USA (I am from the Netherlands myself) and the first time that I actually saw him might be that perfect moment to put in a one second movie. Another one that I would consider is my coming out to my mother, and then in particular the part where I would say "mom, I'm gay", that should take about a second... but is that really a perfect moment? It was definately a moment of relief though, and went perfect in every way possible... A last one I would consider is the moment that I bought the ticket to visit that guy in the USA, because it took me quite a while to click that mouse button to confirm the transaction, since I was only 19 at the time and hadn't told anybody about buying the ticket or the purpose of the ticket yet, and since it was something bigger than I had ever done before. That moment has changed my entire life. Ever since I have changed from someone who would just let life come over him, to someone who takes initiative and doesn't just take life for granted the way it is. Ever since I feel more complete, more free, and happier than ever before and truly have the feeling that everything is possible, the feeling of "the sky is the limit." I think that moment, which took place about 2 years ago, is for myself probably the perfect moment, because it changed my life so much. But I wonder how interesting it would be to make a one second movie out of that... I guess in one second indeed a lot can happen... Sorry it turned out to be a little long ;)

  • At a family friends place, when I was around 6, I stood ontop of a hill. Ready to roll down the hill, I crouched on my knees and leapt. As the world warped round and round in my eyes, time was still. There at the bottom of the hill was my mother, with open arms, ready to catch me as I came down. Childhood bliss.

  • this is a fantastic question.......when my son first laughed really hard for the first time, I guess he would have been about 5 months old. I would say when he was born, but I was too stressed out.

  • Anytime I smile. It's a great smile

  • "platoon 3051, dismissed!!"

  • The last hug I ever recieved from my friend Kristin.

  • The first moment i ever really jumped high on my dirt bike, just the feeling and exictment i got from that still makes me feel good.

  • As a control freak, most of my life has been spent trying to get control of a given situation or maintain it. Even in situations where my fate was clearly out of my control, like sky diving or riding a roller coaster, I would delude myself into believing that I could somehow defy the laws of physics to maintain control, if I had to. One of the most perfect moments in my life came in my early twenties when I first resigned myself to the reality that there will be times when I'm not in control. On a particularly fast and scary roller coaster, I opted to stop holding on for dear life and just enjoy the ride, putting my fate in the hands of the safety harness. That decision, and the single second in which I let go of the hand rails and threw my open palms into the air was a defining moment in my life, as silly as it may seem. Since then I've found tremendous enjoyment in being out of control.

  • The feeling you get right before you walk on stage to do a show.

  • my entry into the world.

  • Perfect moment...driving with my father to Wisconsin in 1969. The conversation turned to death for some reason and he told me that he hoped to live a long life, but had done all he wanted thus far, was happy with how I was turning out, and hoped that, when his time came, he went as quickly and painlessly as possible. 3 days later, he was walking down the street and died.

  • My 1-second moment would be marching into the Olympic Stadium in 1984 as a competing athlete

  • The perfect moment of my life to make into a one-second film would be... my first sexual experience I guess...

  • when i came out to my grandma .. her response "and..."
