Thoughts for every girl: Don’t try so hard to like him, to please him. Try harder to like you, to please you. Don’t try so hard to present yourself. The world is full of people seeking approval. You don’t have to. Just stop and observe. You will learn more about a person’s true character if… Continue reading Don’t Try So Hard
The Night is Upon Us For the Wolf, by Victoria Yeary, April 3, 2019 The night is upon me and I hear the wolf cry And I wonder if his cry is for me? He is seeking a partner, someone to lie with on cold nights, deep in the forest. And I wonder if it’s… Continue reading Night is Upon Us- a poem
It’s Saturday morning,Made coffee and brought it back to bed. I’m tired of coffee. It feels dull on my tongue. I sleep each night on one half, I wake to the other half, neatly tucked sheets without a crease. Where are you my best friend? Where are you my lover?

Meditation, prayer, mindfulness, are all words for being in the center of love. It requires letting go of judgements, of ideas and beliefs. We all cling to beliefs… Continue reading Where there are no rooms, no dividers
Hold me; hold my heart. Hold it like a lover, softly, passionately. Hold it like a father, protectively, strongly. Hold it like a brother, laughing with me, playing along. Hold it like a best friend, secrets we only know, places we only go. And your heart? It is tucked within mine. It is held like… Continue reading Hold My Heart
I am staring a digital blank screen on my WordPress. I am not sure what I want to write about yet; I have some ideas. WordPress has become wildly popular, mainstream almost. I think of it as a platform that writers now have but fifteen years ago the closest thing you could get to publishing… Continue reading Writing as a writer-why we do it
When I grab onto something, an idea or a person I feel is suited for me, it's hard to know when to let go, even if there is a big NO in my face. Tenacity, perseverance, faith? Or is it stubbornness, blindness, and idealism? The more the idea (or shall I say ideal) is in… Continue reading When NO is in your face.
I had no idea that when I stepped out on my walking trail this morning, I would have such a visceral experience. It is Sunday morning and being in the Texas heat is something you prepare for. Armed with my phone and a water bottle, I start out on my four mile walk. What I… Continue reading Carry the Load
