Dr. Seuss’s The Great Cat Continuum seems poised as a powerful artistic expression of this grand adventure. Likely painted during the 1970s, enough time and life experiences had accumulated for Ted to step back and thoughtfully comment on the trajectory of his life. His iconic Cat (often cited as Seuss himself) is depicted navigating a set of floating doors or windows—twisted openings on a curving continuum of life. Metaphorically embracing each decision and walking into each new experience, the Cat navigates away from threatening clouds towards a clearing sky—there light begins to break as if to confirm that this winding journey was exactly as it should be for him, or for any of us.
