Read the following essay by Toni Morrison
1. Think about the way in which the Pope talks about the importance of work and the way in which Morrison talks about the importance of home life. Compare and contrast their points-of-view. Think about the way you have formed your sense of self and the roles work and home life have played.
2. Think about the way in which Morrison interprets and expands her father’s comment or advice. Try to remember a bit of advice an older, wiser person has given you. How have you interpreted and expanded that advice.
Next: write a paragraph about one insight that came to you as you meditated. Include personal examples and references to the text. Write about 10 sentences.
