Diem Perdidi by Julie Otsuka

Please select:

Performed by Jayne Atkinson

A poignant portrait of a mother’s heartbreaking and gradual loss of memory. The Latin phrase “diem perdidi”, is one of the things the mother in this piece still remembers, from her school days, and means, with heartbreaking aptness: “I have lost the day.”
