The One About…The Tao of Maud Announcement…

My Tao of Maud project hits a “milestone” of sorts Tuesday (please pardon the pun) – the 1000th daily post since I started the project. Other than a small tweet noting it, I plan not to say anything now. However, I may toss out a press release later to the general media, since the community itself is responding with a collective, “Meh.”

I’ve also started the countdown. Friday was 100 days until the finale of the Tao of Maud as I’ve done it. The name is my copyright, so I control it (unless Hasbro decides they want it), and I have some ideas for the brand. But that is in th future. Today, I’ve sent a note to folks about the landing…

Thank you for your expressions of support as we went through Hurricane Irma. My household was visited with much less damage than most, just an extended loss of power.

I’m back at work now, creating, as a recent follower so kindly put it, “useless daily fortune-cookie posts nobody cares about.” Truth is, all it takes is one to care – me, the creator of the project. If I didn’t, if I just gave it a half-hearted try, it would show.

The Tao of Maud, as it is currently structured, is coming to an end. The final daily post will be December 31 – just under 100 days from now. Until then, we’ll continue to gather wisdom from many sources, and provide as many daily fortune-cookie messages as we can.

The Twitter account @TaoOfMaud will remain active so you can review earlier posts, as will the Facebook page and website. All other social media sites will be closed soon after New Year’s Day.

On a personal note, I will again offer a Holiday Card program, this time as a farewell. The cover art is by Drawponies and is quite breathtaking. Look for that announcement soon. As always, I’m always accepting donations to grow my holiday book tree.

Thank you all again for being supporters, followers, and friends. These next few weeks might be a bit melancholy, but who knows? A particular show about ponies was only supposed to last 65 episodes. I like to think anything is possible.

Be well on your journeys. Namaste.
