Nobel laureate, Toni Morrison, dies at 88

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

Ocean Is Our Life


The ocean is our life.
She is the source of our livelihood;
She should be taken care of 
For our generations to benefit from.

Ripples of the Ocean

Calm and collected at the scene,
I see blue and green that reminds me of serene.
Grain of sands on my toes.
I love the feeling
The ripples of the water
Crashing on my body.
Oh the ocean,
How I cherish thee.

Maintaining Inspiration

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.
