When I was little, my dad used to read us Sherlock Holmes stories before bed. While my brother often took the opportunity to fall promptly asleep on his corner of the couch, the rest of us listened intently. I remember the big leather armchair where my dad sat, holding the book out in front of him with one arm, the dancing flames from the fireplace reflecting in his black-framed glasses.

I remember the rise and fall of his voice as the suspense mounted beyond all breaking points, and finally, finally, at long last the
awaited solution, when it all made sense and I'd shake my head, just like Dr. Watson, and think, Of course; it's all so simple now that he says it. I rememberthe smell of the pipe that my dad himself would smoke every so often, a fruity,e arthy mix that made its way into the foldsof the leather chair, and the outlines of thenight through the curtained Frenchwindows.

His pipe, of course, was everso-slightly curved just like Holmes's. And
I remember that final slam of the book, thethick pages coming together between thecrimson covers, when he'd announce,"That's it for tonight." And off we'd go--no matter how much begging and pleadingwe'd try and what sad faces we'd make--upstairs, up to bed.And then there's the one thing thatwedged its way so deeply into my brainthat it remained there, taunting me, foryears to come, when the rest of the storieshad long since faded into someindeterminate background and theadventures of Holmes and his faithfulBoswell were all but forgotten: the steps.

The steps to 221B Baker Street. Howmany were there? It's the question Holmesbrought before Watson in "A Scandal inBohemia," and a question that never oncesince left my mind. As Holmes andWatson sit in their matching armchairs, thedetective instructs the doctor on the
difference between seeing and observing.Watson is baffled. And then, all at onceeverything becomes crystal clear.
