How sweet this reassurance is, my Lady. Mother and son now calmed, tummies full, and hearts no longer troubled. And the singing is most thoroughly true to Hobbit nature.

When I found this among all the things I yanked from my page, I knew I wanted to keep the concept but would have to rewrite the story. I enjoyed the time I spent getting to know Primula and little Frodo very much. This frightening dream and Primula's 'trick of the light' foreshadow, but they don't know it and can rest in happy, comforted contentment. I'm so glad you found the song Hobbitlike!

Thank you for taking the time to read and be your wonderful, encouraging self after all this time! It would take too many words to tell you what a gift that is.

“How do you tell them to go away?”

Primula smiled at him. “Why, you do just what you did. You wash them all away, if they’re very bad, and then you tell about them. Bad dreams like to be a secret. That makes them feel strong and powerful. So if you tell their secrets, it takes away all their strength and they can’t hurt you anymore. Do you see?”


How darling! I'm going to remember that for when I babysit my little nephews.

This is a very lovely, and loving, story. Just darlin.

Author Reply: Thank you, Shirebound!

You picked as your favorite quote the very heart of this fluffy little story, the thing that I hoped would be the take-away. I'll be very happy if it can comfort dreamers of any age, but especially children. I'm an aunt now, too, and have said similar things to my older niece and nephew.

Thank you so very much for still being here and taking the time to read and encourage in your wonderful way after all this time!
