Out on a Leash

Exploring the Nature of Reality and Love

"This book is about hearing a deeper song of being that has made me more optimistic about what the future of life on this planet could be. It is based on the truth as I see it, and as it has been shown to me through the eyes of a dog. More to the point, I'm having a new experience with love. I have deeply enjoyed the love of children, friends, lovers, a husband, work, creativity, fame, travel, success, money, politics, controversy and even struggle. But the love that has come to me through my dog, Terry, is an exultant confirmation that love exists in many realities and forms, all of them longing to be acknowledged through wisdom, humor, simplicity, silence and the wordless language of the heart. Here is an account of what Terry is teaching me, now that I am taking time to listen." --Shirley MacLaine
