"You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever." Steve Jobs

I want you to imagine yourself
standing in front of a massive hardwood door that says “The Creative Laboratory”. The door looks very old and you can see that time has worn its way into the smooth wooden surface, leaving deep dark scratch marks and a tarnished brass door knob. You look at the handle and hesitate to touch it for it seems so unlike you to go towards the unknown. You are frightened by this mysterious place and you feel your heartbeat quicken. What are you doing here you ask yourself? How did you get here? Maybe you should turn back towards what is safe and familiar. Yet curiosity gets the better of you and you slowly open the door and peak in to see that there are hundreds of people like yourself already in the room.
Experiment: Can a community work together to tell a real fairy tale?
Hypothesis: If someone has a story to tell that is based on a very real princess who led an incredible life, would it be possible to use the power of social media in its many forms to connect a group of interested people from around the world to create what seems like an impossible story telling adventure?
Desired Result: A creative force will be formed with the intent to bring a story to life. This group will help the author raise a global awareness about the story. They will help her write the story, have it published and turned into a movie based on a real woman, who just happened to be a princess. Her story will offer a timely message about our need to open the door to our own limitations and the creative connection that we all share and the need to express it.
CHAPTER 1 of The Watercolour Artist is included in this book so that you will become more involved in the experiment.
