Six steps to sorry

Love [this framework from Charley Scandlyn on how to apologize](https://alldayeverywhere.com/2015/01/21/six-steps-to-sorry): > 1. I did this (Acknowledgement) 2. It was wrong (Understanding) 3. I’m sorry (Remorse) 4. Please forgive me (Request) 5. I commit to new behavior (Repentance) 6. I will do the work I need to do to repair the damage I have caused (Restoration)

Sohei Nishino’s Diorama Maps

One of my favorites from the new SFMOMA exhibition, [Sohei Nishino’s Diorama Map of London](https://www.sfmoma.org/exhibition/new-work-sohei-nishino/):

So perfect no one will need to be good

So much for futurism? They constantly try to escape From the darkness outside and within By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good. But the man that is shall shadow The man that pretends to be. – [T.S. Eliot](http://www.tech-samaritan.org/blog/2010/06/16/choruses-from-the-rock-t-s-eliot)

The state of the world

> In my room, the world is beyond my understanding; But when I walk I see that it consists of three or four hills and a cloud. – [Wallace Stevens](https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/surface-things)
