The poet reminded me that when, with uncompromising intensity, the uncertainty of life stares us in the face, we must never forget to seek solace in the beauty of place, and the power of reflection.

Catherine speaks clearly, plainly and beautifully in words that we can all understand and take to our hearts. She certainly speaks my mind and she will speak yours as well.

The poetic musings gave me a sense of peace in the rhythms of life around us. Too, the accompanying photographs drew me into the poems and contributed to my feeling of serenity.

Cat’s poetry is haunting. Memories are evoked, as the reader encounters a unique variety of poems. Many are compelling, and give insight into the universality of human nature.
