What event was so enormous,
so impactful, that it serves as the hinge point
between "before" and "after" in your life?

What happened to change your
sense of yourself, of who you are
- your feeling of ease in the world -
- how you relate to others -
- your sense of belonging or being cut adrift -
- how you choose to use your gifts?
These defining events may have changed you
for good or ill, but they unquestionably left their mark.
These seminal happenings may be outright blessings,
horrible burdens, or blessings in disguise.
Everyone can point to one
or more than one,
at least everyone of a certain age
and degree of awareness.
What's your defining moment?
How did it change you?
What wisdom did you gain?
