Today's post is inspired by a suggestion to illustrate a doodle based on Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Not Taken". It seems fitting for Bitcoin, so here we are, revisiting a fork in the road.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

A quick Google refresher (because I don't remember the whole thing from high school English Literature class) led me to an article explaining how it's possibly The Most Misread Poem in America.
The poem isn’t a salute to can-do individualism; it’s a commentary on the self-deception we practice when constructing the story of our own lives.
...
It is a poem about the necessity of choosing that somehow, like its author, never makes a choice itself—that instead repeatedly returns us to the same enigmatic, leaf-shadowed crossroads.

I don't have any astounding commentary on the current situation in Bitcoin. Censorship and propaganda are powerful but objective truths cannot remain hidden forever. BCH is ready for worldwide adoption. BTC is not.
I'm very grateful for the Yours and BCH community's interest in the funny little drawing project called "Satoshi Doodles".
THANK YOU for your ongoing comments, encouragement, and appreciation.
A special thank you to everyone who has expressed support with Yours, reddit, and twitter tipping magic. I can hardly believe that the internet is on the brink of an explosion in which artists, writers, and other content/value creators can be rewarded for their work with BCH.
Thank you to Emilio and Kevin and the team at Yours.org (including Clemens Ley).
Thank you especially to Ryan X. Charles!
And thank you @KoKansei (whoever you are)!
(At the risk of beginning to sound a bit like an Oscars acceptance speech, I'll add:
Thank you to Roger Ver for taking one for the team on a daily basis and for being a passionate, relentless proponent of economic freedom for everyone.
Thank you to miners! Thank you to developers (protocol level and beyond)!
Thank you to the Bitcoin community at large, especially those who are helping to educate others and keep it positive! (Um, and troll-swatting.)
Thank you Satoshi(s)!!!)

I've been asked, what are next steps for Satoshi Doodles?
  1. I will be continuing to doodle while I put together a book, and keep you all posted!
  2. Art prints, coming soon™ . (I know I've been saying that for a few months now.)
  3. Original artwork is eventually going to be available for purchase. Part proceeds to some worthy causes? Does anyone want to make a BCH auction site? (Or maybe I'll figure out how to do this on Yours.org.) ;)
  4. Keep learning.

Behind the paywall is another little behind-the-scenes of today's doodle. (Nothing crazy, although you do get to see my messy desk.)

Pure inspiration, thank you for sharing behind the scenes tidbits as a closer... hhhmmm perhaps the last damaged image could be the most valuable of them all?
Who'dda thunk a constant flow of doodles would raise the bar for creativity??
Cheers, and thank you :)

Thank You SatoshiDoodles for everything. Yes, you are the change we want to see in the world. It was pleasure for me be on this journey with you. Observe how kind and wise person can make an impact on many people, including my girls, who adore you and me, who respect you and wish all the best. It is warming my heart to see an artist become influentional and "successful " (tricky word with tricky meaning) without having to go through the marketing manipulating nonsece. I learned a lot from you and thank you again for appearing here and opening yours to arty staff, motivating others and bringing the best of you out, in sweet and natural way.
Love and respect from us three. ;-)

@Robert Melluish Thank you for your special celebratory post!
@JayPea I am grateful for your kindness and appreciation. Cheers to many more days!
@Cain Thanks for sharing the journey.
@Kain_niaK Thank you, from one artist to another. Keep making your art.
@KoKansei The pleasure was mine and I'm honoured you were interested to come along for the wacky journey. I'm a late arrival compared to these "old-timers" who fell down the Bitcoin rabbit hole five or more years ago. Thanks for being so welcoming.
@TheWildCard You helped me realize that I forked my own doodle, lol. Thank you for your interest and encouragement. A stream of doodles, a stream of consciousness, a stream of transactions, so on and so forth...
@mishapelt Much love to you and your girls. I learn from you to keep the focus on the people, especially the ones we are entrusted to care for. I'm glad you are seeing the positive side of me through an alter ego, but I'll assure you that I also have grumpy mom moments and tendencies towards procrastination in real life. We all have our things to work through. Thank you for being you.
@ DerAußenseiter That's a really nice thing to say! (BCH is pretty rad.)
@Donald Mulders Thank you for your kind words. I'm inspired by the efforts (including many unrecognized efforts and mysterious people with pseudonyms) of everyone working every day to bring Bitcoin to the world.
@Mark Allison Thank you for your appreciation!
@UJ Thank you so much. (GaryVee - pushing forward every day.)
@"Jonald Fyookball" I've learned a lot from you! Thank you for all your work, and for your kind words. Your pizza story shed some light on your many creative talents.
@kos. :) (p.s. Today is day 101.)
@Isaac Morehouse Thank you! When I first visited Yours.org, your articles were some of the most relatable and convinced me to give the platform a try. Not a dumb question: I use a scanner to get the high resolution digital image and then Corel Photopaint (Photoshop-equivalent program, but cheaper than an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription) to clean up and resize for print and social media.
@Imkeshav Thank you for your appreciation (and positivity on Twitter, not too many TAs with your non-aggressive attitude). By the way, I also tipped GaryVee a while ago ($10!) and was promptly ignored. You gotta keep creating value and give without expectation of acknowledgement. e.g. Leaving thoughtful and relevant comments on his content and sharing over an extended period of time. Genuine interest trumps tactics. ;)

Take a break but then consider whether the larger challenge of replacing money throughout society isn't a broad enough canvas to return to :-).

Fantastic! I even wanted to cry (I do not know why, every ending always brings sadness to my heart), it's a very nice 100 day ending! A happy ending, right? After a long journey day after day with your beautiful drawings and see how as those days went by people added to your list of followers, all hoping that you would publish the next day and see that at the end of 100 days you have a huge list of people thanking you and congratulating you, that has much more value than anything else. Thank you for the dedication you had each day to each drawing you made. Hugs and kisses from Venezuela!

@Moises Thank you so much.
@Craig Mason Appreciate your kind words. You videos have a great positive energy too (the ones I've seen, including approaching random people on the street to give them bitcoin).
