Quote

Is there a difference between “Pretend our parents are dead” and “Pretend I’m killing you”? The children know it is all magical play. The same magic destroys and resurrects, creates an orphan or a mother—or the Green Slime. The ability to imagine something is the magic; putting it into action is the play; playing it out is the safe way to discharge the idea.
