Description
Following on from A Life of One's Own and An Experiment in Leisure, this work explores Milner's way of keeping a diary. Recording small private moments, she builds up a store of 'bead memories'. A carved duck, a sprig of asphodel, moments captured in her travels in Greece, Kashmir and Israel, circus clowns, a painting – each makes up a 'bead' that has a warmth or glow which comes in response to asking the simple question: What is the most important thing that happened yesterday? From these beads – sacred, horrific, profane, funny – grows a sense of an 'answering activity', the result of turning one's attention inwards to experience real joy. What Milner conveys so vividly and inspirationally is her lifelong intention to live as completely as possible in the moment.
