Bent toward the water, a young boy reaches forward with his boat, letting it slip gently into the stream.  Suddenly, it is taken, whipped by the current and moving fast over dancing rivulets.  Just as quickly, he is up and running with it, watching it wrap around every boulder and eddy, past every foreign port and sheltered harbor.  His mind has stepped down into another place, where imagination has worked its transformative wonder; he has left the drab life of afternoon behind and has been captured.
