The Roots of Elmore's Existence
by Harrison F. Carter
Willoughby Elmore is a steward to a forest of sequoia trees in Northern California. After too many years in solitude, his life appears empty, and his spirit has waned. One morning, Willoughby rises from a dream so vivid he cannot distinguish it from reality. The power of it awakens him. Willoughby dares to believe that his life can be different - that it can be whatever he chooses to make of it.
