Many of us think our lives follow a path, either fated, or one that comes from a route we engaged on and then strive to follow. But in fact so much of our existence results from a single moment or decision that was made on a whim, even randomly. The Moment is a collection of stories about how a single instant—a single decision, happenstance, accident, call, conversation, letter, or tweet—changed everything, for better or worse.
