Life's a Great Balancing Act

  • Release Year: 2019, Authorized Estate Edition Adapted posthumously from the illustration for the book, Oh, The Places You'll Go!

This artwork is one of the last pages in Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Here Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) not only sums up his thoughts about life but, in many ways, his thoughts about his own journey. The narrative Ted wrote on the accompanying page speaks boldly about life’s great ups and downs, a notion he doesn’t shy away from and one that is clearly evident in this striking image. Ted’s main character moves laterally across this Seussian landscape in a comfortably open space, as if balanced for whichever way life may take him.
