Katinka in the Clouds - Blog

The blog of Kate Griffin. For the last 33 years we have lived up here at the head of the Holme Valley and have not once felt any urge to move again. It has proved inspirational for me. The places where I set my stories and plays, whether it is north, south, east or west, have as much significance and potency as the characters, and since living here the landscape has had a profound effect on my writing. In the last few years, since health problems have clipped my wings I have taken up painting and much of what I paint is very local, sometimes from the house or garden. In my writing I have explored the lives, loves, passions and drama of ordinary people, often taking audiences and readers into dark and uncomfortable places and now, in my painting, I have found, using the texture of paint and the juxtaposition of colours, a new way to express my passion for the tough and gritty world that we live in.

You cannot be serious?

Narcissistic personality disorder: people suffering from this psychosis are seriously disconnected from the reality of who they are, they have massively inflated ideas of their talents, capabilities, their worth.  They believe the world revolves around them and that they are entitled to the best of everything: they will simply grab what they want, be it money, sex, or power. They are blind to their faults and failings and incapable of seeing the world from anyone else's perspective.  They have never been known to apologise for anything they have don, and will brush off criticism with a put down remark: "Haven't you got a sense of humour?" or "It's only locker room banter." 

Someone with narcissistic personally disorder thinks they are the most important person in the world. 

What happens to the world when they are actually elevated to that position? 



Dead lines... A blessing or a curse?
A battle?
