Where was the threshold, between the inner world and the outer one? We each move unthinkingly through this gateway every day, we use the passwords of grammar–I say, you say, he and she, it, on the other hand, does not say–paying for the privilege of sanity with common coin, with meanings we’ve agreed on.
