Ask and Ye Shall Receive an Elephant!
The odds of noticing a pink elephant or a cobalt blue coconut are thought to improve (see post) if a person is mentally focused on seeing such a sight.
A day or so after my post on this principle, Jim Maney kindly arranged for me to see a pink elephant by emailing the picture of the gentle beast above. The proof (of my point) is in the pink pachyderm.
Now to focus on rainbows and fantastic book sales and health and long life.
