Toni Morrison, who received the Nobel Prize in literature in 1993, died Monday night on August 5, 2019 in New York City, at age 88. Her family said in a statement that the author had had a short illness. Morrison is best known for her works depicting African American life, with her 1987 novel "Beloved" winning the Pulitzer Prize for fiction the following year. Before her career as an author, she worked as an editor at Random House in New York.
“We die. That may be the meaning of life. But we do language. That may be the measure of our lives.” – Toni Morrison
The key to maintaining your inspiration
In the day-to-day work of meditation practice
Is to approach it as play-- a happy opportunity
To master practical skills,
To raise questions, experiment, and explore.
