Use of "thought about" vs "thought of"
I recently wrote: I saw a poem and thought about John Doe. Should I have written : I saw a poem and thought of John Doe?
I believe either one is correct. I don't know that I would make the same distinction that Sanjay has. But, even if so, there is no context to know if you only thought of John for a moment or continued thinking of him long after first seeing the poem.
