That story is still resounding through my mind. Oakwise, I could almost _see_ that forest you described it so well!!!
A person who can describe the visual to the blind is pretty amazing.
Also, your story really had a lot of emotional power. I felt what the person in the story felt. I lay down to sleep on the roots. I heard the oak speak. I was astonished at how the animals came so close to me. Ok, I'll stop rambling now...
