Outside of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the hot blueness on the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare feet, extending from his overalled legs, crackled in opposition to the fallen palmettos. He leaped in the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling above him.
