“Sometimes Things Become Possible”


“How is it possible, I think, to change so much and not be able to change anything at all?”   (Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall)




“The world is a possibility if only you’ll discover it.”   (Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man)




“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”   (Arthur C. Clarke)




“Let’s go back in time.  Way back.  Before there was even a ‘you’.  Good.  Now further back. Before there were mountains.  Right.  Now before there were oceans. Cool.  Now before there were planets.  Bravo.  Now before there was time and space. Wow.

What’s left?

Right, there was only me, Universal awareness.  And what is awareness, but thought?

Love it.

So, if where there was only ‘thought,’ there are now suns and moons and planets. Mountains and rivers and oceans.  People and places and pets.  What must they all be made of?


And look who’s thinking now… You?  You are thinking now?  Are you sure?  But if ‘where’ there was only me there’s now you, who must you really be?

Nice roots.   (signed)    The Universe”    (Notes from the Universe, Mike Dooley, 5.24.17)




“So many things are possible just as long as you don’t know they’re impossible.”   (Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth)




“Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough.”   (T. S. Eliot)
