    Last Week

    We were lying in bed, in each others arms, in a thatch rondawel out in the African bush, fire cracking and casting a magical light, bounding off the stone walls, talking about our plans for the future, things that happened in the past, and at that very moment I thought 'this must...

    Disney Movie Moment

    I was at an audition for a musical, and I was waiting in the hallway for my turn. I was standing by the stage manager's table, and I noticed this really good-looking guy signing in. I noticed him because he was probably close to the only guy that I had seen so far waiting to...

    Perfection Personified

    When I was fourteen, I was watching my baby cousin Nathan. It was the first time I'd ever spent a lot of time with an infant. I thought I was going to panic. I didn't really know what to do. I'd changed diapers before, but I was all by myself with him. Well I fixed him a bottle...

    I Think I Had One Once

    It wasn't with someone, it was just one moment when I could feel happiness swell inside me till it felt like my chest would burst. When I think back on it, it was probably teenage hormones. I was 14 and sitting in English class where we were trying to experience the joys of Silas...

    Hugs

     I have had many perfect moments. But just last night, I had an absolutely perfect one. Two people who care about each other embraced in a tender and long hug. It was a perfect moment for me and this boy, holding each other close with no inhibitions.
