Textures are really a different part of the brain than left/right, though. I almost
always have to double-check left/right verbal (and probably written) directions
with "my hand that makes an L". But I have absolutely no problems seeing an arrow
on the GPS and knowing the direction, and I do slightly better with
east/west/north/south verbal directions if I know the area I'm being directed in.
("OK, sun rises over there. OK. I'm oriented.)
I think I'd do better with "red boot, blue boot" than right and left, actually. Not
sure; definitely if I see them, not so sure if I can't see them -- except that
"red" and "blue" leave a stronger impression on my mind than "right" and "left" --
and also I know I'm not super-good with sensual things unless I'm concentrating.
(-: There is a huge sensual difference between hay and straw, though. That's a
really cool technique!
