Three Years and A Day…

By at 12 September, 2009, 8:48 am

Three years and one day ago Urban Observation was founded. And so today we celebrate, one day late. Pardon me as I’m on CP Time (explanation below). With a search for Love from The Orange Phoenix, insights and reflections of life from the mind of Dan-Sean Mankind — whom both contribute great poetry — we […]


The Lost Episodes: Finding Love in the Big City XXV

By at 31 August, 2009, 12:00 am

Time waits for no one and that is oh so explicitly clear as I hear my biological clock “tick tock” louder than the ocean. Not saying that the ocean noise isn’t lovely and all, but hot diggity. It seems that marriage is all around me — everyone I know is either shacking up, thinking about […]


Thoughtful Thursday: Conversely Elevated

By at 27 August, 2009, 4:26 pm

The following text is to be considered a steady stream of conscienceness. Any grammar or spelling errors should not be excused, as this has not been looked over by an editor or revisited by its author. That being said… Let’s get down to the post. I pretty much don’t care about what I put on […]


Disappearing Acts

You ever have those people who can be considered extras in your life? The folks that don’t really have a supporting role or a main part within your life yet they are a constant staple in the background? Well, for me, I find myself noticing those folks who sit on the bench or are in […]


Thoughts for Thursday: Above Reproach

Someone inquired about my whereabouts — you know who you are. I’ve been out of touch and out of reach, but hope to get back to a regular blogging schedule. More on where I’ve been and  my thoughts on that experience later. Random Thoughts: This is a blog post I’ve been working on in my […]


Dirt Nap

I dug a hole
Then I fell inside
I lie…
I was pushed inside
By my foolish pride


A Long Goodbye – Memory of Mike

By at 7 July, 2009, 5:30 pm

For MJ When you got your assignment from the spiritual realm above, you took yours seemingly with no complaints – the cost of being a living version of love the slings and arrows of gross injustices and at times outweighed the patience that lived within your work would you do it all over again? If […]


For The Record Pt. 2

By at 11 June, 2009, 12:00 am

There are just some things about people that really turn me off. I’ve been quiet for quite some time now and it’s about time that I expressed my thoughts on this. Please allow me to introduce to you four people who really are in need of a wake up call. Mr. & Mrs. Me are often people […]

Letters In taking the time to place pen to paper writing my tangelo blend of truth, My shouts of I love you are tossed together with PAST DUE and “renew your subscription here” All of us stuffed in canvas mailbags, temporarily housed in the belly of Postal planes. As the price of cutesy stamps lift […]


For The Record

By at 28 May, 2009, 12:29 pm

I love you… Those three words, when spoken, will be recieved and registered by the recipients in different ways. Some people take these words and can reciprocate the exact same sentiment, while others are threatened by them. The way a person chooses to recieve the words, “I Love You”, is beyond my control. I know […]


Weather Confusion

By at 27 May, 2009, 12:53 pm

What is up with Mother Nature and why can’t she grasp the concept of warm weather being welcomed by all? The picture above is a true reflection of confusion, as the minds of the people in NYC don’t know what to put on before leaving the house. Some are mixing it up just in time […]

I am here thinking about the kids that attended my program, and the kids that I had the pleasure of working with over the past week. When I think of children and all of the qualities they possess at such young ages, it brings a smile to my face. All children, in my opinion, are […]
