  • 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.

  • Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a project, to create a compendium of invented words for every emotion we might all experience but don’t yet have a word for.
