the link was suddenly clear to me: there were no children roaming in the wilderness. Gone was the unintended fall over the bottomless cliff. The fangs of unsuspected snakes were now made of vinyl and hopefully tinted red minus the Chinese lead. A dim memory of wild beasts lurking. Beast lurk. No broken limbs, no uncontrolled infections, no fevers.
