Restore My Soul

By on July 20, 2010 @ 3:08 pm

All I knew, is that I was just an innocent soul. I thought I was alone in that unfamiliar place; minding my own business, when you came and turned the light’s out. I didn’t know where the light switch was, and I could not see in the dark. Also, I didn’t know who was responsible […]

Thoughtfully Awesome

By on October 15, 2009 @ 10:35 am

Some conversations cannot be missed when you are in close quarters with people. As I turned my iPod off, I ended up hearing, “it was deliciously awesome.” I wasn’t sure what the person was referring to but I knew I had to find out. It was later learned that she was talking about cupcakes. Deliciously awesome cupcakes […]


Angel Taylor – Lost in the Fog

By on September 22, 2009 @ 6:47 am

Music is as subjective as ice cream, we all have a flavor that resonates with us, whether it’s deep rich chocolate blues or a nutty flavored Amaretto. I was assigned the task to review Ms. Taylor’s new album and at first I was hesitant — not wanting to say the “wrong” thing, but as I […]


The Friend Zone

By on September 18, 2009 @ 12:00 am

Whether you’re a single person or in a relationship, being friendly or cordial with someone who likes you shouldn’t be a task. However, it can actually be hard to deal with someone on a friendship basis, when they have feelings that go beyond a platonic friendship. It strikes me as funny how people can be […]


What Comes After Bronze? – Part Uno: Finding Love in the Big City XXVI

By on September 15, 2009 @ 4:35 am

The starter pistol explodes… And she’s off ladies and gentleman – that girl is burning that midnight oil: getting to know him, liking him and is ready to give that subtle yet gentle reminder that my pants are already down and I’m waiting for you to notice. . . (circa episode XII) look. Here’s the […]


Three Years and A Day…

By on September 12, 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 on August 31, 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 on August 27, 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

By on August 10, 2009 @ 1:30 pm

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

By on August 6, 2009 @ 8:53 am

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
