Ball of String (Paperback)
On Our Shelves Now
Our lives are connected to each other and to the world by strings of one kind or another. Whether they are the ties of flesh and blood or the ways we choose to live, we share a planet and are dependent on each other for mutual support.
In Ball of String, Currie writes about his journey through life and how it connects us to each other through shared experiences, emotions, the need for humor, and the things we learn from our travels on this earth.
We may arrive here and leave here alone, but the journey between is the precious gift that we have been given. Take some time to treasure it as you enter into the introspective fields of Currie’s poems and photographs.
