P is for Professor Kirke

My theme for the 2017 A to Z Blogging Challenge is The Chronicles of Narnia. These are my favorite stories and they continue to inspire me. 

When Professor Digory Kirke was a boy, he went to Narnia. Aslan had given Digory a magic Apple that would heal his mother back in our world. Digory planted the core of the apple and it grew into a tree. Years later, Digory used the wood from the tree to build a Wardrobe, which became a portal from our world to Narnia. 

"No," he said, "I don't think it will be any good trying to go back through the wardrobe door to get the coats...of course you'll get back to Narnia again some day. Once a King in Narnia, always a King in Narnia. But don't go trying to use the same route twice. Indeed, don't try to get there at all. It'll happen when you're not looking for it. And don't talk too much about it, even among yourselves. And don't mention it to anyone else unless you find that they've had adventures of the same sort themselves."
