Reverb day 5: in flight

Go on, show us your selfie! You know you want to.

If you’ve been a part of Reverb before, you know that this is the bit where I invite you to share your favourite photo of yourself from the year (selfie or otherwise).

For bonus points, give us a montage of the photos you have shared during each Reverb you’ve participated in. (Throwback Thursdays #tbt are also welcome!)

For some reason, there haven’t been many photos of me this year. In fact, I was going to put up a glowering selfie in atrocious lighting that I took a few days ago, but then I remembered that my friend Anne had sent me some pictures from my 30th birthday party. Here’s my favourite:

Flying at my 30th birthday party

This is what they call a ‘basket’, and it is the most amusing move in the Cumberland Square Eight. There are two men and two women (or people who have assumed those roles for the duration of the dance, whatever). The men put their arms around the women’s waists; the women put their arms over the men’s shoulders. Then you start spinning. If you go fast enough then the women take off, as we have done in this picture. I’m the one on the right, in the black-and-white chequerboard dress. You end up with very achey arms, but it’s tremendous fun.

I was wearing that same dress in my photo from two years ago, I remember. I can’t show you that, or 2012’s, because Facebook is down. In the meantime, however, here’s last year’s:

  1. Wow, I probably would have passed out or thrown up if I tried to do that maneuver. Love it! I used to square dance in high school and enjoyed it bunches. My step dad used to be the square dance caller, if that’s what you call it. He and my mom enjoyed many years of square dancing.


  2. That dancing move looks like a lot of FUN, despite the tired arms you get by doing it =) And I love the photo of you in that FABULOUS HAT!! You look GREAT and I can see why it is your photo for your ‘about me’ page here =) Glad to see you sharing yourself(ie) here!! 😉


  3. Kathleen! There is something thrilling about the images you posted here! I’m so impressed by your wardrobe and way of being in these fantastic clothes! Hurray for flying in a checkered dress!
