TBD

TBD on Ning

Many TBDers have planted their flags here, like the Americans planted a flag or two on the moon. We marked the territory, so we consider the job done. Were not really there, but we went there once.

The Ning TBD seems in a frozen, in-between place. So many folks from old TBD seem to be here, they've planted their flags, but they're hollow accounts, place-holders for when or if their true love sinks beneath the waves.

I am a traitor to my TBD-land, I find it easier to move about here, but I must be cautious and not offend. Its sad to be in-between, to hail an old friend from TBD, and no response comes back. Just ghosts in the machine. There's a bitterness, I'm becoming an ex-patriot.

For now I will wait and hope that more accounts transform into real people or just become records of fossils, echoes of happier times. The confusion and disorder about is it surviving, is it dying is dismaying, and doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy about old TBD. Like those stores that say "Going out of business" and never seem to go out of business. What's the deal? I would assume everything that could be done had been done before sending out the fateful post defining a closing date, and yet the rumors persist.

I am a ghost over there, a vague presence over here, unsettled.

TBD was a natural fit for me...This joint will just require me to take some time to adjust, I think. The key, I guess, is not to be impatient. Hitting the ground running is not an option. Just gonna have to let it soak in....

There's a discussion to find enough interested parties to possibly keep the old TBD going...http://www.tbd.com/group/2767/discussion/2021710/show.

shell account..... almost. I'm sorta here.... and sorta there..... This place hasn't been as easy to just dive into like the old TBD was. Maybe it's just the transitional phase.

It takes time to rebuild and re-create in a new environment. There's a lot of folks just moving over the past day or two. I think patience is the keynote, and time will tell...
