encouragement

Finding suits artists better than seeking, and many are not studious but develop ways to pursue their lines of curiosity. I like a coincidence per day, a sort of emotional per diem. It has to be the real thing. This is the way that discovery can feel so apposite. It is encouraging. Without the middle noun ‘courage’, life is heartless.
