Imagine you could talk to a tree and ask him anything you want, and in the process, you find out more than you want to know. Meet Me in the Metaphorest is such an imagining. When the Empress of Inertia finally wearies of keeping on hanging around, she seeks advice and looks to the river running behind her house and Aeschylus, an old oak tree in decline, perched high on its bank. Follow her pursuit of arboreal counsel and learn about the process of preginning. See how the Empress tries to follow the advice Aeschylus offers while, at the same time, trying to digest the informational full meal deal that comes with it. Meet the Harbor Tree, the damned beaver, and Willie the Shake, the Bard owl, and wallow in the magic all around us. Spend some time in a book that reminds us that words and ideas are always waiting for us to play with them. Meet Me in the Metaphorest - and you just might come away with a whole new set of questions.
