Momo

Currently I am reading a book called Momo by Michael Ende. This is technically a children’s book, but the overall meaning it has stretches beyond the typical children’s book. This book was originally written in German which makes the meaning even more interesting to me. The main message revolves around time and how adults can so easily get wrapped up in work and prioritize not “wasting time”. The book basically tries and gives the message that taking the time to use our imaginations to tell stories or spending time with each other is what a life is really about. Looking specifically at the German culture, we know they generally have such a strong emphasis of efficiency and time. Knowing this fact, depends the overall meaning.
