Your Laughter Take bread away from me, if you wish, take air away, but do not take from me your laughter. Do not take away the rose, the lance flower that you pluck, the water that suddenly bursts forth in joy, the sudden wave of silver born in you. My struggle is harsh and I... Continue Reading →
Desire denied love dies finds another place to hide Love missed insists on a kiss Heart enflamed seeks to sustain the spark that was to blame © Sandy Hibbard 2017
A strange beautiful woman met me in the mirror. Hey, I said, what are you doing here? She asked me the same thing. Marilyn Nelson b. 1946
It appears that love is not as statuesque as you may imagine as tall as a supermodel as buff as a bearded hipster everything you think you love hard can break like ice on a pond. Careful where you walk at what temperature and never leave the love of your life behind or they... Continue Reading →
I love this little verse and the pic that goes with it. I wrote this on my first trip back to Paris after many years, it was the birth of my blog http://www.2sistersinparis.com. I hope it gives you a little image of one of my favorite cities. XOXOX Sandy
I started my day today on a solo excursion up the street from our hotel. I stopped at Cafe Pierre on Boulevard Magenta to have my morning (or actually early afternoon) cappuccino. The sky is overcast today and the it is windy and a bit chilly, but when the sun comes out it warms quickly. I spent time at several street corners with my camera in hand snapping cyclists – I was amazed at how well they navigate the traffic and the streets – people of all ages, sizes, men, women and kids! I snapped the photo below of a beautiful Parisian dressed to kill and on her bike! You would NEVER see this in Dallas!!! The city is bustling all around me and inspires my muse….
Pulsing, living, breathing, in and out
Paris the city of people – diverse, beautiful at it’s core
Inspiring, magical, elegant, cryptic, crazy…

Beautiful and tender, a lovely poem from House of Heart, I had to share. XOXO Sandy Esperanza There is a need of lips pressed, pressing, of hands seeking. Here in my straight back chair, hold back the firestorm with your elegant hands and with your lips claim the hollow at my throat. Scatter my silk... Continue Reading →
I want to do to you what spring does with the cherry trees. ~ Pablo Neruda Amazing photography by Graham Owen.
An interesting take on all this political mess…..
The troubles I’m having with this whole tuesday
I have lived all my live long days in the most wonderful state of Oklahoma. I literally love this place. I was born here, all my friends and a lot of my family live here. I have deep roots in my community of moore/southwest OKC. I have, all my life loved this magical place.
I am a fan of Lena Dunham, I think she’s a superstar and such a bad A independent woman. That has almost nothing to do with anything except in her book “Not That Kind of Girl” she said that she probably didn’t meet a republican until she was an adult.
I live in Oklahoma, I LOVE my friends and my family here. It is filled, very full with loving kind people that are registered as republicans. That has almost nothing to do with anything except that most republicans…

Stunning and beautiful poetry from Daniel at http://www.danieljeromeantil.wordpress.com – this is for all women XOXO
Let her dream, for she has loved too long,
and no mortal world shall e’er take her;
let her seem, for she has cried her song,
let nightmarish tide dare not wake her;
let her give, for she has all beauty within,
that no love may e’er take her breath;
let her live, for she has life yet to begin,
and let gods be bereft upon her death;
let her cry, for she has tears left to mend,
no sorrow is spared for her want of woe;
let her die, for she will arise in the end,
and by her death, all love may she know.
Be encouraged today and know this: If you’ve got troubles, IT WILL PASS. In time it will heal, it will lose it’s power. Nothing stays the same and that means that nothing is set in stone. You have the power to change your circumstances and your attitude about them! Chin up! XXOXO Sandy
I love the mystique and nostalgia of the cocktail, here is a great article by the Paris Apartment, enjoy!
bonjour, allo, santé et tchin tchin. hi all, how’s your fall unfolding? i love when the weather gets that crisp fresh feeling and the air has just the slightest chill. not to rush the season and look too far ahead but it’s that time of year when we naturally start to hibernate and nest a little. for many of us that means entertaining and although i’m not a big drinker, i’ve been thinking about putting a bar together for the impending festivities. i got inspired when i heard from my friend and colleague, doni belau. she’s the editor and brilliant mind behind a girl’s guide to paris and has just released a fantastic book titled ‘Paris Cocktails’. she’s offered to host a giveaway here today on the blog so if you’re interested, you can either purchase a copy at the link above or enter your name in the comments…
