Lost or abandoned

As you walk you encounter many things along the way. Sometimes they are placed other times the just lie there. I wonder: lost or abandoned and how do we know the difference?

    One of the first things I noticed when I moved to the UK over twenty years ago, was the preponderance of single mittens and winter gloves left on the street. Some had been placed carefully on the railings of walls near where the glove was lost in hopes that their owners would return to collect them. While many other gloves remained exactly where they were dropped. I often wondered when their owners discovered they were missing a glove – and, did they regret their loss?
