Gradually I came to enjoy it,in another plane of reading, figuring out from whom wordswere originating. To not notice it, as if it were one of thoseannoying 3-D posters that you can't see until you make aconcerted effort not to try and see, became simple – muchlike those 3-D pictures are once you know what not to lookfor.
