Routledge | April 27, 2011 | 248 pages

Following on from A Life of One'¬"s Ownand An Experiment in Leisure, Eternity'¬"s Sunriseexplores Marion Milner'¬" s way of keeping a diary. Recording small private moments, she builds up a store of '¬Übead 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 '¬Üanswering activity'¬", the result of turning one'¬"s attention inwards to experience real joy. What Marion Milner conveys so vividly and inspirationally is her lifelong intention to live as completely as possible in the moment. With a new introduction by Hugh Haughton, Eternity'¬"s Sunrisewill be essential reading for all those interested in reflecting on the nature of their own happiness '¬ ; whether readers from a literary, an artistic, a historical, an educational or a psychoanalytic /psychotherapeutic background.
