A self promotional page of the author's mind, artwork and some literary pieces in response to being selected as "Author of the Day". The feat can be daunting but also rewarding.

One, does not rest..

"The voice of the intellect is a soft one, but it does not rest until it has gained a hearing."
Sigmund Freud

Work Interlude

Wikinut as a community gives you a feeling of peer approval for every big or small deeds of acknowledgement, be it from colleague's comments, moderators' message, badge, stars and yes being an honorary featured artist for a day.

For this, I am twice glad for being endowed my 2nd "Author of the Day". Such felicitation however short and some say dubious for usually not knowing the distinction -until someone greeted you - can be a hazardous to one's artistic focus. For the purist this is a mood interruptions. For others, such work interlude can be a blessing and an opportunity to be thankful and be on selfie mode to promote whatwe do best - writing and those other worthy endeavor that occupied your day in pursuit of higher needs. Below are some of those:

Art performance

Not ordinary day

I elected to be obligately belong to the second norm of welcoming this "Author of the Day" for the simple reason this is not an ordinary day. Self promoting can be an instant pressure. Though I uniquely have a two (2) days a week job and parenting in between, for me to check my own archives is an additional hustle just to parade some yet unshared work. I even have to extemporaneously create a worthy article (minimum number of words requirements) to showcase whatever can satisfy or wow the readers. For this task I include some chain Haiku poems for general appreciation, if you are not please just remember this is either your day treat for me or am having a bad writng day.

The Poetry Book

(from a book inclusion)

Pages beckoning
waiting cherish cpossession
To whom the eyes toll

These noblest artist
Shared their work's prized creation
Free or under paid..

To whom readers love
Our words will be with them now
Profound writing bliss

October 2014©

come what may...


A clock still ticking
Money burning and come what may
Vision now fading.

Season ends and back again
with winds, ice, leaves or plain dry
assured certainty.

Miserable year
Some cheers whilst death harvesting
on our circled land.

Life always begins
whither other have vanished
for imperfect law.

A wonderful curse
To end all must return to
endless beginnings.

A clock still ticking
Money burning and come what may
Vision now fading.


Journey continues...


Sixty two thousand plus views
a creative platform
night burning keyboards.

Just celebrated 12th months
in this cyberland
among mighty men.

This enclave domain
we wrote we share, thrive in
lower and upper case.

Be it paid or unpaid
star-badge or tap on the back
all milestone enough.

I think every writer should spend a little time providing their own self-reflection - it is a very empowering thing to do.

Thank you Peter for moderating and such an early adapter for gracing my page a real comment. True we have to rest at times even take a few step and see what have we been missing. Resting too long is already hibernation this happened to me when Last year when I had 74 articles in 3 months and had only addtional 10 articles done since November. Restng can renewed our spirit, but can also lead to disinterest and derail our goals. Again thank you Wikint for featuring me twice since April last year.

I agree Saigon..a bit of 'me' time is rejuvenating too much can make us lethargic and less motivated. Glad you're having a rewarding experience on wikinut, it's a great site to be part of.
