When Everything Was Possible follows the intuitive wanderings of a twenty-two year old woman, Anna, from hiking the Long Trail in Vermont to working as an apprentice at a goat farm and for an artisanal cheese maker. The precipices of Vermont's ridgelines conflate to become the personal precipice Anna looks out from as she surveys all the possible paths for her life. Seeking an alternative to the traditional, she sets about to redefine life, deliberating as much on the natural world as she does the peculiar philosophies of a hermit cheese maker. Matched to her journey is a young man, who possesses an equal amount of creativity and deliberation about inventing one's life with purpose. It is during this time that many of life's critical decisions are made, and because her future self will be the inheritor of what happens now, she must define the perimeters necessary that will enable her dreams and the discovery of love with another. Told in three parts: her brief relationship with nomadicism, On the Trail; her time of studying settlement, On the Farm; and lastly, The Companion, where the landscape, creativity, friendship and love blend together and become the contours of the life she is beginning to shape.
