The Possibility Box

What positive messages appeared to you today?


The Possibility Book will reveal the misadventures of writing and publishing this book, which might come in handy if you flirt with sharing your story or launching a creative adventure someday.

Among the misadventures… a few years ago, I quit my career and started following my curiosity, which led me to begin jotting down wisdom and writing a book for my kids.

And then I got the crazy idea that the Universe might be conspiring to help me. Sometimes it seemed like inspirational quotations were appearing, encouraging songs playing, and meaningful coincidences happening, precisely when I needed them.

The Possibility Book will dish entertaining tales about serendipity, friends, family and “signs from the Universe”… some funny, others profound, one or two that seem downright impossible. They’re like routine life, suddenly sprinkled with pixie dust, a reminder that everything and everyone is connected.

For inspirational quotation lovers, within this book will unfold a beautiful collection of wisdom, featuring everyone from Buddha to Sinatra and Yoda to Oprah. The Possibility Book will explore the self-doubts, fears, struggles and rejections that first-time authors and creators often must tackle to turn possibilities into realities.

An aspiring author on a quest to become a published one meets Silicon Valley, spirituality, serendipity, the literary world and Hollywood.

For more than two years, I have been writing most of this story privately, but I’m summoning the courage to share more of the material, with the hope that maybe my story could help encourage and inspire you to realize your creative possibilities. 

The mystery is how The Possibility Book will become reality.
