It is very important to us, after all, we are social animals. Unfortunately, most of this relationships can not be long-time. We seldom maintain the contact with our schoolmates after we graduated, or our work partner after one of us change the job. Because of so, I think we need to manage the long-time relationships attentively, our family or religions. Because they are the places we repose our mind in our life. When we are tired or in trouble, they are always our “Harbors of Refuge.”Q1:At p.165, Mitch says : “I took the file on me and headed home, or to the place I called home now.” Why he describes his home like this?Q2:The title of this chapter is “The things we find.” What are the things besides “the file on Mitch”? In others words, what Mitch really found after he saw the file?

He felt empty instead of superior this time. While reading the file, he inflected his life and dreams. The dreams which he had before were almost achieved, but he found he lost something important, that is- connection. His job makes him be a “citizen of the world” and makes his life revolve to work. After losing his work connection, he can’t find other human ties at all. Now, he finally finds he started to miss a group he had dumped- a sacred community.foyer (n.)

We have many relationships that are important to us. Unfortunately, some of them cannot last long. For instance, we seldom keep in touch with our schoolmates after we graduated, or with our colleagues after the assignments were finished. Because of this, I think we need to manage the long-time relationships attentively, including our families, religions and so forth. They are the places where we repose our mind. They can also make a good warm shelter when we feel tired or get into trouble.”Q1：At P.165, Mitch said, “I take the file on me and head home, or to the place I call home now.” Why did he de-scribe his home like this?A1：This is because his job makes him take the world as a family. He changes his address all the time, having less connection with his neighbors. The house which he lives in now is just “temporary” for him.Q2：The title of this chapter is “The things we find.” What were the things that the author really found after he saw the file?A2：He found that he not only lost the connection of his work partners, but the connection of faith. He tried to run away from his faith when he was young; however, he finds that he actually needs them.
