In the latest Source I have written a companion piece to Miriam O’Connor’s excellent series ‘Tomorrow is Sunday’. The editorial in Source 94 says of O’Connor’s work:
Miriam O’Connor’s work Tomorrow is Sunday explores an unanticipated return to the family farm following the death of her brother in 2013. O’Connor documents what is now on her doorstep, producing logbooks and inventories of routine farm tasks, checking the water pressure, reviewing animals, fields, trees, rocks and farm tools. The compiling and indexing is driven by a desire to “comprehend this complex transition and reflects an effort to regain some semblance of order where past and present might begin to reconcile in some way”.
