From the Author
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...
- 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.

Mike Dooley is followed by millions around the world as the author of Notes from the Universe. [Full disclosure: I am a subscriber myself, and daily it feels as though The Universe is writing its Notes just to me!] Regardless, this is a book that belongs in every child's library.
Three friends take off in an enchanted air balloon "over the moon, and past the stars" in delicate rhymed couplets accompanied by the delightfully soft-focused illustrations of Virginia Allyn to teach the lesson that so many of us Cultural Creatives have been learning lo, these long decades, into the new-ish millennium we now inhabit: how to manifest the lives of our dreams.
Has anyone else other than me noticed the attentiveness of new babies in grocery carts all over the world? I have had the privilege of attending two births of these remarkable children in the past year, and their consciousness is astonishing. These children are coming to Earth to teach us, their adults, how to more than survive the Earth crisis into thriving vitality and aliveness.
This is their book.
In fact, now that I think of it, perhaps I ought to reveal the real truth about this book: it's only masquerading as a children's book, Beloved. Truth is, it's a book for the adults who belong to those children. The people to whom we-who-already-know-how-to-read will be reading it are not the ones who need to hear this message! Fact: those little souls already know this information--they came here to teach it to us!
So begin it now, as Goethe would attest,
Click to see what wonder Mike Dooley does suggest:
"The world is your oyster
And life is your ocean,
Just follow your dreams
To set the waves in motion."
Congratulations, Cap'n Mike! Dreams Come True--All They Need Is You! is a five-star, bona fide, real-life winner. I'll see you on the high seas of life!
This is a perfect gift to give to your friends' children because your friends will hear the message of this book as well. I will add this to my list of favorite things to gift to new parents. And I will keep a copy on my coffee table in hope that it will be picked up by my guests, and that the words of wisdom inside those pages can spread to all those that are ready. "Talk a little, sing a lot; walk a little, dance a lot; smile a little, laugh a lot; dream a little, live a lot!" How wonderful is that?
