From the Author
Jambo Fellow Adventurer!Have you ever had a project go suddenly and disappointingly off course ... only to end-up exceeding your wildest expectations? Rarely has this been so extreme - both heartbreaking and Whoohoo-inducing - as it was for Dreams Come True.Over a 3 year period, nothing I said or did could persuade any publisher to take it on.Over the next year, nothing I said or did could persuade the artists of my choice to take it on.Finally, an agency made a timid recommendation, their third.... and suddenly (over 4 years later!) the project fell into a "Twilight Zone" of creative serendipities and divine collaboration with the heaven sent Virginia Allyn, proving once again that by holding onto a vision in spite of appearances, taking action, and never giving up... dreams do come true!
Today, however, on the other end of the creative process, I'd like to remind others what I had too easily forgotten. That while dreams most certainly do come true...
To your miracles, guides, and the plans that await - Mike Dooley
- only in hindsight are the miracles obvious,
- only in hindsight can we see how guided we were,
- and only in hindsight do we find that all along there was a plan.
