ILLUMINATION

The Art of the Apology

from Randy Pausch’s last lecture

Sun filters thru tree branch. A wave crashes over a large rock making spray caught by the sun and foamy water. Distant ship.

I wronged.

You hurt.

Tell me how,

to make it right.

An apology breaks chronos for an instant,

Healing Kairos for eternity.

A single wave explodes against the rocky shore spreading white and blue foam.
Author’s photo, Pacific Ocean

Chronos is linear clock time

Kairos is opportune time
