Delectable Mnts has a new owner


I have transferred ownership of our board to Katlin. Had it been possible I would have given the board over to Chris as well. As best as I can tell, Runboard (the mothership), only allows for one owner. Both Kat and Chris have been with the board from the beginning. This goes back to Sep. of 09. In fact, Kat worked with me night after night, and for maybe 2 months, maybe 3, designing, organizing, formatting the board. Chris was there too advising and helping in the process.

As some older members know 2012 was a challenging year for me. 3 invasive surgeries, 3 months of chemo for bladder cancer within 11 months to the day. Cancer got cleaned out. Fact is my body is still in somatic shock. During that time Kat and Chris took on the board. My participation was tertiary at best. They saw to board business. They saw to members regularly. They kept the board active. Now they are willing to run the board, take ownership, without my interference.

Let me explain something. When I created the board I was a refugee from maybe a half dozen or so poetry boards where practices were bad, viscious, political. Where sniping and snarky behavior was the norm. Places where board owners both encouraged and enhanced the snarkiness and the sniping. I created the board out of protest. I wanted a board to nurture and not circumsize poets. I also wanted a venue where poet types, mostly, could play out their ideas. I think I succeeded. I think creative types can talk here free of fear of being censored in some way. But without Kat and Chris I could not have succeeded.

I'm not going anywhere. Delectable Mnts will always be my stomping ground. Or for at least as long as I am welcome. In the beginning my thought was to create a spot and then hand it over to women. The most successful salons are always conducted by women.

Tonight I'm kind of excited. It's kind of a cool notion what could happen here.

As the saying goes, this is mete.

Just a quick note tonight to say: Thank you, Tere, for trusting us enough to gift us DM. We will do our best to keep it going in the same spirit you used to create and run it. You better stay on as a member! We need and value your contributions. The board just wouldn't be the same place without you.

Best,
Kat

PS More tomorrow when I am not feeling so tired.

Yes, Tere, you have certainly succeeded in creating a uniquely nurturing board. I thank you most sincerely, and with loving regard.

As you say, Kat and Chris have been there right with you, so I anticipate a continuing happy poeming ground.

Thank you, Libra. I think I done good, put up a small number on the positive side of the number line. Now I'm looking forward to what Kat, Chris, you, and others do.

Yes, thank you, libra. I hope you stick around too.

Hey Tere,

One small correction to your outlined timeline above:

Board founded on: 14/Sep/2008, 6:07 pm

No, my memory of when the board was created isn't that good, but I trust Runboard's records on the homepage. This September will be DM's 5th anniversary! Maybe this year we can have a board bash. God willing and the creek don't rise. emoticon

Thanks, Kat. Wow! 4 plus years so far. Pretty good for a board such as ours. On the other hand no time at all given how rich it has become.
