Over the course of a decade, Courtney Milne created about 45,000 images of his swimming pool in Grandora, Saskatchewan. As his partner Sherrill Miller wrote, Courtney "was constantly amazed that he could go out every day and find something new. It was compelling, entrancing, all encompassing and enchanting, and he so much wanted to share this experience, as an example of how others might see their worlds in different ways – 'with new eyes'."
The Pool of Possibilities e-calendar was produced in 2007: an online daily e-calendar of 365 different images accompanied by Courtney’s comments, called Poolside Wisdom. "Courtney gave each day a name reflecting the interaction between nature and human nature. Then Courtney rearranged the Julian calendar, naming his months for the rhythms of nature and the planetary forces that impact us."
We are pleased to announce the re-launch of this feature: the Pool of Possibilities E-Calendar is now available on the University Library's Courtney Milne website.
