How long must we live in the heat of the sun?
I grew up in Florida all my life and remember thinking before moving to New York about whether or not I’d get stuck there like an orange blossom growing in the heat. Florida has a weird and complicated history. It sells itself on the promise of Magic Kingdoms and sunny beaches, but also is full of controversies, serial killers, and scandals. Don’t let the heat get to your head.
