  • The brilliant artistry hidden all around you.

  • Its’s strange that something so vibrant as art is so nearly invisible.

  • Strange how rarely we stop to savor the details, or hear the music playing in the background that’s far better than it has any right to be.

  • It’s only after someone points it out, that you finally catch the tune.
