To the Tree and Back
by Charlie Bud
A small boy, friendless and struggling to connect with his family, finds a tree in the middle of the woods. Moved by the trees will to stay alive, even near lava rock where even the hardiest tree cannot find food, the boy digs a path so water and soil can find its way to the tree.
Although the tree would have been forgotten about by most, the little boy returns as a young teenager, and later as a young man, with different companions and experiences alike. This tree sees the boy grow into a man, and discover who he truly is through love, loss, and rediscovering old memories.
