Spring has arrived in New England, along with the Spring 2016 Issue of New England Memories. Many thanks to all of our contributors! Rodger Martin captures the promise of renewed life that dwells in the lingering cold of April in his poem “New Hampshire Scallion.” Marilyn Weymouth Seguin and Lori Douglas Clark take us with them to the warmer days of summer at lakes in Maine. And Nori Odoi shares her first memories of New England in her essay, “I Don’t Think We’re in Kansas Anymore.”

Also, Ann B. Day shares vivid images of life and people in the farmland of Vermont through her poetry. And our featured photograper, Karen Hope, captures the simple pleasures and beauty along the roads of New Hampshire in her images.

We hope you enjoy this issue and would love to hear from you on this post’s page in the comments section.

Wishing you the best of memories,

Linda Thomas, Editor

Winter in New Hampshire
by Linda J Thomas

In the second issue of New England Memories, Tom Sheehan writes about a special, “lip-smacking” Saturday collecting quahogs on Nahant Beach in Saugus, Massachusetts. We hope his story brings back some of your own memories of a day at the beach to warm you during this cold, New England winter. Cynthia Close, Stephanie Minteer, and Becky Dennison Sakellariou also share their wonderful stories in prose and poetry in this issue. Sandra DeSantis provides striking images of our New England history in her photographs from her travels in Massachusetts. Many thanks to all our contributors!

We hope you enjoy the Winter 2016 Issue.

Wishing you the best of memories,
