In the Cat’s Eye

In the Cat’s Eye

Our neighbor's cat showed up at our door one day, and I let him in. We were strangers, but we soon became friends. We learned to trust each other. All of us have literal or figurative cats at our doors. We must choose whether to let them into our lives or send them away. Letting them in, whether they be cats or people, involves some risk. Relationships take time and work, and the willingness to commit part of oneself. It also involves the pain of loss, when those we let into our lives, leave. Part of what makes life interesting is the mystery. Each event, each stranger, teaches us a little more about ourselves and about our journey.

When the cat shows up at our door, it's an invitation to taste life. It's the chance to make the world more than the pictures on our TV, flipped on and off by remote control.

Our community of souls needs more participants and fewer spectators. We have been given a great gift and we need to learn to savor it. Open the door to life, and don't be afraid to laugh and cry. Look in the cat's eye and taste, touch, smell, listen and see what this beautiful planet can offer during our brief time here.

Reviews

Glenn Currie’s book blends the joy of life with some serious depths of insight. His juxtapositions of bright photography with equally vivid musings and metaphors are sometimes startling, sometimes consoling, but always memorable.

In the Cat’s Eye invites the reader on an introspective journey through life’s many phases. I felt a sense of calm awareness enticing me to live with adventure and embrace these creatures that show up at my door.

Glenn Currie brings his poet’s heart and artist’s eye together once again in this beautifully produced new collection. There’s magic in every glimpse and daydream.
