Re ‘In Front of your Eyes’ [ FT358:75]: yes, when searching for something it would be helpful to keep an image of the object in mind – but what if, as my partner and I have experienced from time to time, the image has somehow become ‘corrupted’? Half hours are wasted looking for a recently arrived buff envelope or pink leaflet. Both are overlooked in the piles of papers because, it turns out, they are white or yellow. Even then I can’t quite accept my image was ‘wrong’, and I ascribe it to the malice of inanimate objects. Sometimes even the size of the envelope appears to have transmuted, larger or smaller.
