Katrina Quinn  Photography & poetry Solo show: @im_individualmedley

http://www.katrinaswords.com/

Had to share another. Here's me in @im_individualmedley getting as early 00's as I could, complete with genuine-2001-bandana, dance moves inspired by Back Street Boys music videos and a dress that Mr Q actually picked up for me last minute last week because I'd managed to forget the dress I usually wear. I definitely used to wear a lot of ill-fitting clothes with big random statements on, so this did the trick! :-)

Thanks @rosiepowellfreelance for filming @im_individualmedley ... The still shots have surprised me once again at the range of facial expressions I unknowingly pull! #sexyandiknowit

Feeling a bit like this today. Picture is from Monday, when Ophelia turned the world dark and orange for a while. The poorer quality of my Fairphone camera is definitely frustrating on days like those, and is reducing the amount I post here too. Ah well. Can't win 'em all, right? Today's a bedding down, comfy pants, sugar in coffee, give up on yoga, slow, try to be kind to myself day. Thinking quite a lot about (and feeling) these tensions and contradictions in us that can so easily lead to guilt. Even something as simple as spending time and money the other day on using birthday vouchers to buy new shoes and tops - which made me happy but also guilty about the hours I spent and the fact that most likely the products have involved some kind of exploitation along the way. Argh. Guilt is so tiring, but struggling to know how to avoid it! Here's a quote I re-read today which may not be obviously linked but is to me! (About accepting that these different parts/sides of you can somehow sit together): "And yet, ultimately, our underwater, intuitive selves are never really incompatible with the above-water, intellectual part of our wholeness" (Madeleine L'Engle). Ramble over, for now! X

Sunday chills with two faves

I could sit here all day. Enjoying a HOME Saturday... Including a wander into Shoreham centre where it seemed the whole town was out. At the market (from which I had delicious vegan pies... It's all very middle class) and at the (not very) multicultural festival in the community centre. I saw a poetry-guy I know, who got us to sit down and try some meditation techniques whilst a group played 'music' from central France on stage. The guy smelled like apples. I'm not sure I could feel my kundalini energy coming out the top of my head, but it gave me food for thought, anyhow... Llewellyn said he could hear people taking photos of us while our eyes were closed so perhaps we'll end up on a meditation or multicultural festival leaflet one day. Haha.
Now back in the flat on our lovely new yellow chair, watching the water. Friends popped in for a hot drink halfway through a cycle ride. I'm going to do some work at my writing desk in a minute, and friends are coming round for ramen and crumble tonight. This is for sure the nicest flat we've lived in. I feel very lucky. #home #saturday #life #shoreham

It was a pleasure to share the stage last night with the colourful and creative @ticktockbridget - who did a stellar job despite one of their team being sick. Irish jigs, Gogol Bordello and a cricket called Selwyn, what more could you ask for?! They're going on tour v soon, maybe to a cafe near you! Follow them and find out! :-)

I left for work early to shop but forgot my wallet. So took a detour and stood in a forest for a bit. It smelt so good.

Got some really great birthday cards this year, here's just a few of them :-) good to have friends that know what makes you happy!

On Wednesday I'm bringing my solo show "Individual Medley" back to Brighton, this time at The Nightingale Room (upstairs at The Grand Central). And it's a special night because I'm teaming up with Share Your Story and Tick Tock Bridget who will be sharing their dance piece "Rejoining Jane", which was also at the Fringe. Looking forward to it, please come on down if you missed it, invite your friends and/or come again for some more poetry-swimming-moving-stories :-)

So fun to be "poet in residence" -- spending less than 24 hours with people, chatting and listening and soaking up what was shared and turning it into a poem before our time together was out. More of these jobs please!! Here's a snippet of it, it does get more hopeful! I was lucky to be around so many generous, kind and community focused people and to be inspired by conversations about lament and hospitality and the magic of algae and mycelium (and trees talking to each other!) #poetry #community #stories #poetinresidence

Today I started a new job doing Arts Admin/marketing for some cool theatre/music/festival stuff, did a shift with my usual support worker job, then drove to Southampton to spend 24 hours at a hotel being resident poet for a very inspiring group of people involved in community projects across the South. Told you everything was happening at once, not just moving house! Plus got my show on NEXT WEEK and other totally different work on too! But I'm happy, doing things that feel like me... I did forget my toothbrush and this fancy hotel room doesn't seem to supply one... Ah well can't be good at everything. LOL. #salmonfordinner .

Also this "calm" lotion smells amazing. Should make up for bad breath... :-/

We are so happy to be here. #moodlightingeveryday #stillcantfindtheemojis
