DRAWING STARTS OCTOBER 21st

ENTER TODAY

Book Blurb: The Monarch and the Moth is the latest installment in a series of short stories written by Vincent James Vezza. This book explores the nature of change as seen through the eyes of children and their aging grandparents.

" Her head lurched up, then down, then up again as she made her way toward the tip of the tender twig. In the motionless air, it was suspended above the parched creek bed. On an adjoining twig, moving in the opposite direction, another caterpillar made her way toward the trunk of the old oak tree. The twigs stemmed from a shared branch that protruded ten feet above the exposed roots anchored in the western bank of the now silent waterway.


The silence was broken with a snap of the branch and then a splash in a shallow pool of water. The reflection of the majestic tree disappeared in a ring of concentric waves. The caterpillars found themselves in a new world dominated by tadpoles."

3. fear they will fail.

just saw monarchs on our walk through preserve over the weekend. they seem to be confused with weather change here in northeast.

3. People fear the unknown and losing control over circumstances (which they really don't have anyway).

Caterpillars and tadpoles share the fact that they are at the beginning of their journey and facing changes to become "who" they were meant to be. We can all see that message in our lives at one time or another!

3. I think people have a hard time accepting change because they fear the unknown. They get in their comfort zone and want to stay there. They might be afraid their circumstances will get worse instead of better.

3. I agree with what others have said. I think fear is a huge part of my some people refuse to accept change. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of consequences, etc.

Fear of the unknown may keep people from change.  Also, change can be painful.

Caterpillars &tadpoles are both in the beginning  stages of change. So much more to life is just around the bend!

#3 - Sometimes people become complacent, or have a fear of the unknown, so they'd rather go with what they know.

3. People are afraid of the unknown, even if their circumstances are bad, they feel safer in them than in taking a risk.

Thanks for sharing this book, it looks very interesting.

2.  Why might they be afraid of change?

Fear of the unknown can be very powerful. They don't know what is coming and, even if told it will be a wonderful thing, there will still be some fear.

They both change into different things.
