Is there a perfect moment?


Folks,

A friend used to ask me this question, "Is there a perfect moment?" For a long time I thought I had an answer and then it changed recently.

Do you have an answer, if there is one?

Love is like a magic penny
 if you hold it tight you won't have any
if you give it away you'll have so many
they'll be rolling all over the floor

You're wrong, it was this moment.
Are we there yet?

Yes. Nailing the crux move on Honed and Buffed at first attempt. That was a perfect moment.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost, in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
That moment.

Folks,

My best shot used to be, "When pain stops" but I now have another one, courtesy of Keats.  :)

Perfect moments are like quantum phenomena - as soon as you become aware of them they collapse

Monad,

Maybe I've been lucky, or just not too choosy.  :)

"Is there a perfect moment?"

Yes. Most often, you see perfect moments documented and captured in a photograph.
Not every photograph, but some prime examples can be found:
worldpressphoto.org/
worldphoto.org/
nationalgeographic.com

Now if you are talking about personal perfect moments, I view those to be more psychological; linked to one's personal state of well being & happiness. More elusive, abstract & serendipitous.
