Stuck in your mind?

Have you ever seen something that you just can't forget that you saw? What is it?

Er...yeah...that would be you, Eüreka...

How you doin'?
This question is too general. I could pretty much tell you all that I remember growing up...In what sense do you mean it?
Everything I remember.
If you're looking for specific memories that stand out from the crowd:

The effulgent beauty of every lover who has stood naked before me.

The time I saw a voice emerge from a river and move in a fluid arc to my ear and out my mouth as a new song.

The time I saw a tiny speck in the sky across vast acres of prairie snow. Larger and larger in a straight line, a crow flying, until it landed on my knee, looked me in the eye. Posed for a photograph then turned and flew away, back to the distant point from which it emerged.
Maggots swarming in my sink.
The first time my daughter sat up by herself.

Walking through a hospital hallway and nurses quickly pushing a gurney with a young girl in grand mal seizure.

The first time I saw my wife.

A moment when my favorite dog ever was looking up at me from the kitchen floor as if pleading. She was dying and I put her down the next day.
Yes, I have. Long story short....many years ago I saw someone levitate. They didn't know I saw them. It was not the magicians trick most of us have seen. Very, very weird.
I was on a bus in Turkey. There was a crowd of people standing beside a boy, not more than 10 or 12 lying in a pool of his own blood. The Turks were standing, smoking and talking. It was then that I really understood that many in this world do not value life the way I do.
