TROLL (book excerpt)

"It happened then that one day Charlie was practicing and out of the corner of his eye noticed something move in the hallway outside the open doorway. At first, according to him, he didn’t think anything of it but after noticing it several more times decided to pay more attention. “Must have been the cat” he said aloud and turned back toward his music, a new edition of John Coltrane’s masterpiece
Giants Steps. Focusing again, he had played but a few bars and this time he was sure he saw something in the hallway. But what? Flummoxed, he put down his sax and decided to go for a walk. But first he went downstairs and told me what had happened." 

Excerpt from the story "TROLL" in my soon to be released A LIttle Book of Spirit Stories c. 2012

Your Daily Hafiz

Do you know how beautiful You are?

I think not, my dear.

For as you talk of God,

I see great parades with wildly colorful bands

Streaming from your mind and heart,

Carrying wonderful and secret messages

To every corner of this world.

I see saints bowing in the mountains

Hundreds of miles away

To the wonder of sounds

That break into light

From your most common words.

New Mention and Author's Page on Facebook

"Victoria's book "Spiritual Turning Points" is FABULOUS!!! What a wonderful comprehensive look at our 7 internal monads, done with an incorporation of shamanic, astrological and developmental milestone descriptions.....I cannot tell you how much I have gained from and referenced this book, referring back to it time and again, highlighting, making notes, etc. It is especially helpful as I am living with my almost 94 yr. old father who is in the throes of the 6th IM, and at the 6th level of that monad to boot. He may even be a bit farther with that 6th level, and having this book as a reference helps ME be as supportive of his waning time as possible. Conscious death is possible here, and I can be a support of that."  Mari Lynn Young

Thank you so much Mari Lynn!  And, a little news, I have a new Author Page on Facebook. Please take a moment to "like"! I will be posting info about my new book "A Little Book of Spirit Stories: Encounters with the Paranormal" soon.

New Book on the Way!

I am currently working on my second book, "A Little Book of Spirit Stories" and plan on publishing it as an E-Book sometime this fall. It will include a collection of first hand experiences with the Spirit World or the paranormal, those seemingly unexplainable moments when we connect with something or someone not of this physical plane.

I am very excited about my new project and look forward to sharing it with all of you!
