I was reading an article in the paper today about the artist Christo (one of my favorites) and the movie premiering on HBO Tuesday about "The Gates", and I was lucky enough to have been in N.Y. 3 years ago to witness them. To me, it was a one time magical moment in my life. Something I can never go back to. Like going to London was a magical trip, but it wasn't a one time event, because I can always go back to it. I can never go back to seeing "The Gates" again.
Now I'm sure there will be all the parents out there that say "when my kid was born" and that's a given. Let's pick other one time events mmmmkay?
Others of mine include:
Seeing Christo's "The Umbrellas" in 1991.
Being at 4 Olympic Games (so far). And yes, I know I can and will go to another Olympic Games, but every one is really completely different than the others. Each is a unique experience, at least that's how I see it.
Witnessing the death of the rabbit we used to have in the office (it was a serene amazing moment in all actuality as my coworker held him as he died in her hands).
That's all I can think of off the top of my head.
Do you have any one time magical events you've witnessed?
