Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “let go.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “let go.” Enjoy!
The first thing I thought of when prompted by the phrase “let go” was this hilarious scene from The Great Outdoors. [attached below]
We, who grew up with TV and movies, have a cache of quotes and clips that are indelibly etched into our minds. I’m a movie quote junkie.
We are unavoidably connected by our movie history. A quote or mention of a scene is a cultural shorthand we can rely upon. There’s no need to explain further, we ‘get it’.
So, for today I’ll leave you with a Dandy Candy moment and say, “Hey Dad! Let go of the rope!”.
