THOUGHT AND POEM
Written By Jeanne Claire Probst

When I looked out my kitchen window yesterday, I saw a little bunny rabbit hopping around in my back yard over by the fence where I had planted carrots last summer.  It was also when I noticed that in just a few days almost all the snow in my yard had disappeared.  The prospect of having another garden this year moved me to want to act.
 
By “acting,” basically, I mean… thinking!  And even thinking at times can cause me to feel as if I had run a marathon depleting me on any ability to think anymore.  However today, I did have the energy to run the route and I started to think about all the things I wanted to do come summer.

Thinking about summer fun builds in us such anticipation and it makes it hard having to wait one minute more before we can do what we are looking forward to doing.  We then start planning our vacations and where we want to go and what we want to do when we get there.  The list can go on and on…tired yet?
 
I am looking forward to planting a garden again this year, and hoping to have the health and ability to be out in it working the soil and watching what I plant grow.  I am looking forward to seeing all the butterflies, the bees, and the birds that will stop by for a visit. Speaking of birds… today… I saw my first robin!  I am happy! 

What about you?  When the signs of spring appear around you, what do you look forward to being able to do?  Share your thoughts with us…

SEASONS vs. READING. WHICH IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Written by Jeanne Claire Probst

Summertime, we’ve heard it before
Is the time of year when vacationers head to the shores?
For many, the peaceful waves are hard to ignore.
 
The sound of the seagulls gawking and the sun shining above
These are two things people who go to the beach crave and love
They can’t wait for the new day’s dawn to show and then they flock the beaches in droves.
 
Now wintertime has some good things to offer too
For people who like the snow and ice winter can deliver these for you.
Sledding down the hill, skating on the ice or skiing on the ski slopes these might be the winter things you like to do.
 
The smell of the pine as the cold breeze stings your face
The excitement to be felt when competing in a winter sports race
Or the crispness of the morning as to the cold you awaken these might be what you wish to embrace.
 
For me, I guess I can say that I like the spring and fall kind of days
Where you can sit and read a book either sunning on the breezeway or in front of a fire on the colder parts of the day
And let the plot of the book you read take you from the reality around you and whisk you far away.
 
Maybe you will find yourself in a quiet place at the end of the earth on a journey you have never been before
Or to a place where the culture and beauty it offers you cannot seem to ignore
A book like the seasons can offer so much to you if you take time to turn its pages and explore.
 
So which is right for you?
Reading a book or the changing seasons these are both there from which you can choose
What you will want to do with each day and how you will escape life’s stresses and hullabaloos.
 
The answers are neither right nor wrong
The seasons bring new delights and each day will sings a new song
Or maybe to read is what makes you strong and give you a sense that this is where you belong.

The Fifteen Houses, a Novel

The Fifteen Houses is the first book of this new and exciting series to be published. Staged in the beautiful and scenic palate of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, in the early 1950’s, the main character delves into her reoccurring and discomforting memories of her younger, formative years. Searching for answers to questions that have resurfaced in her mind over and over again during her time away from her family, she seeks to find rhyme and reasons to her insecurities, anger, phobias, fears, and life’s choices. Julianne Marguerite, one of eleven children, is determined to uncover the “mystery” that resulted in the downfall of her family. As you turn the pages in the book, each series of memories, will open a different door, to the different homes, (“Fifteen” to be exact).
