I'm currently doing some research for an art project about lives as narratives.
I would like to hear from you if there is a moment in your life which may at the time have seemed entirely inconsequential, but which in hindsight you can see as a pivotal moment in the narrative of your life.
To give an example, here's my story.
One night when I was 17, I had some friends over and my mother asked me to make sure i washed up the cups we were using before I went to bed. I forgot to do this, and the next day this sparked a huge argument between us. I moved out of home (albeit briefly), quit college and got a job. I often wonder how different my life could be now if I had just washed up 3 cups; all the people I may have met or not met, the relationships I may not have had, the places I have ended up.
So please, if you have a story like this, email it to me at email@example.com or reply to this thread.
Thank you in advance for your time.
