Seems about right

Actually, it was 43. Sheldon Cooper said so. So it must be true.

That was Raj Koothrappali... Wolowitz corrected him...

RE: Is there a perfect moment?
I don't think there is a perfect moment and I wouldn't want there to be. The imperfections in life are what make things interesting. The stars are never going to be perfectly aligned in all areas. Life always ends up happening even when things may seem "perfect" if only for a little while. I prefer to live my life and not put it on hold awaiting for perfect moments, instead I like to embrace the imperfections and follow my heart's desires as they come.

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?

Stock answer is September of 2009... of course there's a "perfect moment!?"

Haven't you been there?

"Sounds funny" according to Douglas Adams... kinda preferred chapter 42 of the tao, but that's just me. Angel

But since you're not talking about physics or biology right now, and instead the perceptions of our subjective experiences, a moment can be perfect to you, I would think. Every moment in theory, though likely not in practice.

Hi Cosmo,

Yes, that was how I took the question and have mulled it over through the years. My best shot was, "When pain stops".

Quote:Edit: Running out into the warm water of the Atlantic and playing in the waves with my younger siblings on the beaches of Clearwater, as a recent example. That moment was perfect to me.

Good one. Smile

My recent one was akin to Keats 'Ode to a Nightingale' when he says "To cease upon the midnight with no pain"

I was riding the Yamaha Thunderace on a private stretch of road and redlined in third gear, with the front end dancing over the blacktop and the rear squirreling under power. I just thought, 'This would be a perfect moment to go out; just perfect'... and then the moment was over and I throttled back. Cool

Yes, I believe there are perfect moments. But they are just moments. If the moments continued for too long it would get boring and wouldn't be perfect anymore. Cool

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

For me they happen when the band is firing on all eight cylinders, and even the "mistakes" take the song to a beautiful place ... especially if it happens while we're improvising.

Another time, for me, is taking a country drive with my sweetheart ... just her and I and beautiful scenery, wonderful conversation or silent companionship.

Hi Bucky,

That's a good point. I think a 'perfect' moment will feel like its not connected to the chain in that way, if at all. Moments in addiction are particularly vulnerable to the chain.

A guy once asked "What's the best pint of beer you've ever had?" His mate said "The next one." Consider
