The mountains of Florida

The mountains of Florida? That’s where we are. Ocala is 37 feet above sea level at full moon. It’s a low-slung country.

And a strange beauty. Dangerous, maybe.

Spanish moss drapes everything outside. During the slightest breeze, the ghostly stuff sways with the rhythm of a macabre chorus line. Erie even in full sunlight.

Many houses look like the boyhood home of Jack Sparrow.

Or maybe one of Hemingway's cat houses.
