  • I remember this one night about a year ago I was driving home around one or two in the morning so obviously it was dark out and there were stars like nobody's business...that night I had been extremely upset about the way things had been going with my boyfriend at the time, and I was worried about going to college and such and such and so on. Anyways, I'm sort of a romantic, and wish on stars all the time as a sort of habit-comfort thing...So I was driving along a dark road, the only car around, and I look up and see this beautiful bright vibrant star and I think "what the hell, why not" so I think about things and decide all I really want is for things to cheer up a bit...suddenly I noticed my star was flying away...I then realized I had wished on an air plane of all things...I began to laugh until I was making myself cry from laughing so hard...and ever since then, everything has been fantastic for me...=)

  • Christmas morning, while I was still a kid and naïve. That one second when I'd wake up and remember what day it was.

  • 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 moment I quit my first job.

  • The moment I saw my prom date coming down the stairs in that beautiful blue dress. Ah, young love.

  • 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.

  • Anytime I smile. It's a great smile

  • 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

  • Coming to America.

  • The most perfect moment in my life was when I was 10. I was a military brat living in Norway and I discovered Gummi Candy, when I went on a walk with some friends to a corner market. it was getting dark, the street lamps turned on an we came out of the store with a pound of Gummi Candies. It was such a beautiful night and we walked all the way home with a smile on our faces, even though some of the Gummies were pretty sour -- but good. I've been addicted ever since. I'm still a child at heart.

  • Ah, tough one. Toss up between the moment I met my girlfriend Dominique or the moment I traded one red paperclip for a pen shaped like a fish.

  • When i got a case of the giggles during my wedding ceremony

  • my entry into the world.

  • I know what it will be... but I have not experienced it yet. I promise to share it once it is mine to give.

  • Waking up not alone for the first time.

  • A perfect moment that I would make into a one-second film is when I was little and my mom would drive me and my little brother around for hours in the car looking for Santa. She’s awesome, because now I’m older so it amazes me that she would drive around that long with us and pretend to hear/see Santa’s sleigh just to make us happy. But that’s moms for you.

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

  • When I was 13 years old, and I was in the hospital room while she was about to give birth to my beautiful baby sister, and as I held her hand, her faced turned from a pale white to an angry red...I'd never seen someone's face turn colors so rapidly before, it scared and astonished me. It was awesome.

  • My perfect moment from my life would be the first cries I heard when my twin boy and girl were born.

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