“Because the history
of evolution is that life escapes all barriers. Life breaks free. Life expands
to new territories. Painfully, perhaps even dangerously. But life finds a way.”
Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park – Michael Crichton
The little girl has a mop of curly brown hair with blond
highlights, a colorful but warm shirt, dark blue jeans and white sneakers. She looks
like a four- or five-year-old ready for an outdoor romp.
And she is outdoors, on all fours, as if ready to play at
being a little curly-haired terrier, or maybe a slower-moving turtle.
Except . . . stretched out and propped up around her are
other curls, curls of razor wire, through which she is being guided by a man
who might be her dad, or perhaps a perfect stranger.
