Kay’s Journal: Comings and Goings

Here’s what I’m writing about in my journal this week!

JV icon K Journal


Our wonderful Journalverse manager, Lynn Southard, told us last week that she was resigning to take a full-time job. Ohhhh noooo! was my first response, but it was quickly replaced with my full support for her career advancement and my complete gratitude for her amazing work over the past year getting the Journalverse and instructor certification training programs codified and structurally stabilized. We now have systems in place that didn’t exist a year ago, and it’s because of Lynn and her excellent work.

So this week’s blog is a tribute to Lynn Southard, who in one short year made a big difference at the Center for Journal Therapy. Here’s my tribute.

An Alphapoem for Lynn Southard

L ynn, you’ve been exactly what we needed. In
Y our devotion to detail and getting it right,
N o one could have been a better match. You took on the
N oble task of of creating

S table and smooth-running systems for Journalverse.
O ur gratitude is deep for the
U nderlying organization
T hat comes as naturally as the beating of your
H eart (such a large and lovely heart)
A nd the many ways you’ve cared for our
R eaders, guests, contributors.
D arn it! We’ll miss you! We thank you, and we wish you all the best.


PS Our new Journalverse manager is Melissa Benjamin, who recently moved to Denver from the New York City area. She is a lifelong journal writer and is working on a novel. Welcome, Melissa!
