@RusA Thanks, I didn't know that. Actually, part of the training of both the writer and the artist (and I'm a little of both) is to get into the habit of looking at familiar things like you've never seen them before. People get into the habit of filtering out "irrelevant" details in what they see, and one of the gifts of a really good writer or painter is that they can see those details and communicate them in their work. One reason I love to get children to talk about things, is that so much of their experience really is jamais vu, before they get into the habit of filtering the details.
