what would it be?     read more moments

  • 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.

  • The first time I held my son.

  • Dipping my feet in the warm Arabian sea, just as the sun sets. Looking out into nothing. Everything calm and still for that one second.

  • If I could choose one perfect moment from my life to turn into a one-second film, it would have to be the moment the sun rose above the horizon after my night of camping in the Sahara outside Timbuktu. I'd woken up early that morning and was in the process of collecting sand with a young Tuareg child as the sky exploded from an inky black into a brilliant orange. I still have a vile of that sand at home.

  • Ryan Nicholls last minute header against Leyton Orient in a soccer game in Wales in 1994.

  • breakfast.

  • Carefully stroking my little brothers tiny hands when he was just a sleeping baby and I three years old. It was such magical that this little creature with those fragile fingers came into my world.

  • For me, my perfect moment would be the first time I drank Pepsi. It's sad that this is my only 'perfect moment,' but it is by far the best.

  • Me standing on the edge of the grand canyon looking out over the great creation with my arms spread wide and yelling at the top of my lungs./The time I realized that life isn't always what it's cracked up to be and that life goes on even if you lose the girl or old friends move on. New and better things come around and realizing that we are a product of our pasts. Yeah, I was young, but it sure did help from then on out. I felt a great stress relieved from my shoulders and it was the most incredible thing ever

  • One time I accidentally stapled my finger. That would be pretty quick.

  • Becoming a father was a perfect moment. Another one was watching the last second tic off the clock as we were about to win our first NBA championship.

  • 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.

  • My first breath.

  • One perfect moment is coming down from the top of the first hill on a roller coaster; so much anticipation, excitement, giddy joy. It's all adrenalin and uncontrollable laughter. If I could live in that kind of moment for a lifetime…

  • If I could choose one perfect moment from my life to make into a film, it'd probably be this one . . . no wait, this one . . . or maybe this one. Frankly, each one seems to be a little better than the last.

  • Perfect moment - Catching a fourth queen on the river to beat a full house, when I was all in for all my money.

  • The first time I made a child laugh.

  • the moment my daughter was born.

  • I do martial arts , and am a part of the national demonstration team. I remember we were giving a show at this sea side city In Greece and we had our platform right over d edge of a cliff and all that there was to stop us from falling was a tiny wood banister . Story cut short the new guy on the maintenance team forgot to nail the last piece of platform , and some one , unknowingly put a 1x1m cushion carpet over it not knowing it was barely balancing on the edge. In a couple of minutes inside the show i saw myself tilting over , smashing right through the wooden banister , falling 2 storeys high , expacting a splash into the water that never occured. The cause ? On my not so smooth descent down my ranking belt got caught in a root and I was left gobbersmacked and barely able to breath hanging 1 story up , and looking down at another one. A rescue boat came after 15 mins , but it sure took an hour to get me down from there , or at least so it seemed ! ... Why is it my perfect moment ? Cos thats when I learned to laugh at myself , and silly as it may seem , that moment shaped life as I know it , life is a beautiful mess ! perfection is sooo overrated ! imperfections are the main ingredients for a perfect moment!

  • That moment is buried deep within my vaults... But the final day of High School was Close! That final moment where the bell rang!
