The most effective stories find their way back to the primal, primordial, or primeval one, closest to the trunk. Some go right down to the roots. Others show their glory in producing all new flower and fruit. But there is, nonetheless, one tree – the world story. We are all on the craft of making it grow, and the forest of its seed is vast and aeternal.
