the city.

Listening to one of my favorite songs (video below), I began to relive memories of a place I adore, a place where I have family, a place where I tasted the most delicious pizza on earth, a place I haven’t visited for a long time, I place I’d love to explore all over again with my children.

box of nyc.

Roaming the streets alone
Finding secret spaces
Stealing inspiration
From the people
And the pavement
Skipping the ordinary
Making my own itinerary
Discovering new favorites
Without a single disappointment
Recording every future memory
Wandering from west to east
And everywhere in between
I write about her to fill the void
Too many months have faded away
Without my feet touching her ground
She misses me and I miss her
The moment has arrived
I must prepare for my return

what sandra thinks swish.

A favorite of mine. I think it’s one of the most beautiful songs ever…


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  1. Loved this:

    Stealing inspiration
    From the people
    And the pavement

    Enjoyed this because it is exactly how I feel – observing and finding inspiration in what most people overlook. Thank you for creating and sharing this.
