Welcome to Bobbi's Corner

Know you what it is to be a child? It is to be something very different from the man of today. It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to be believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing to everything, for each child has a fairy godmother in its soul…

—Francis Thompson 1859-1907

I read Francis Thompson’s words when I was very young and the following thoughts skittered across my mind. I have remembered them ever since.

“Do you know what it is to be a writer? It is to be wired differently from everyone else. It is to wake in the night holding pen and paper to catch an idea before it disappears; it is to pass a house being demolished and see a home screaming for remembered holidays, birthdays and celebrations; it is to see a falling leaf and imagine a life cycle passing beneath its shadow; it is the ability to glide into a galaxy as small as a grain of sand or be as omnipotent in an imagined universe as the Creator is in His; it is a sound or a song or a word that becomes a scene—a scene that becomes a chapter—a chapter that becomes a story. It is to transform characters into friends and settings into communities; it is to make the unbelievable, believable and the illusion a reality, for every writer has a story in their core.” ~ Bobbi Groover ~
