Have you ever had an " eureka " moment in your life? What was it?

      I've had several.  The first was accepting the fact that I found meaning in life through helping others. Another was that I seemed to actually have the ability to positively affect other people.  There have been other eureka moments, but those were the most significant.

          Actually I had one yesterday, although it was more a realisation than Eureka moment. When I was a child, I had a huge crush on John Walton (not John-Boy, the actual father). I sort of carried this crush though and still joke about it now. Yesterday it came on the tv and I watched a bit of it, wondering why I had chosen this man over the children that were more my age and then it dawned on me. What I had thought of as a crush, was actually a longing. Because to me, his on screen character was the perfect father, caring, considerate of his children's feelings and I think it was this what I really wanted in my life. A decent father to do all these things.

            It turned out to be a fizzle. I had an epiphany. It was a total realization of what I should be doing with the rest of my life. I was going to create art that would celebrate God. This realization was followed by one idea after another after another. I could see sculptures, complete in every detail. I saw drawings, paintings....it was like a high speed slide show. I was able to draw ONE of the ideas. The following day, I couldn't remember any of it.
