Gone Fishing On Golden Pond.....Cuttlebugchallenge Blog ~ Challenge #35


I visited one of my fave blogs the other day..(actually I visit there almost EVERYDAY)...and always on a Wednesday...to see what the challenge is..

Challenge #35 was...create a project based on your favorite movie.

So..if you know how my mind works..you'd know that I had an immediate flood of thoughts... because I don't have ONE favorite movie..I have MANY. (Don't we all??)..It's kind of like ice cream...how can someone expect us to choose JUST ONE flavor as a fave??

Then..once the onslaught of favorite movies slowed down to a simmer...I started thinking of On Golden Pond...
I think that On Golden Pond is a favorite of mine because it's a story about relationships (yes..the social Worker in me always likes a story about people..their lives..their trials and tribulations..the dynamics of their relationships....and what makes them tick...)..and I guess the additional appeal of the movie, for me, is that fact that it is about old, well seasoned and well weathered love..and portrays an aging couple...their connection to one another..and the evolution of their lives..as they age...and its portrayal of an adult child who still struggles for the approval of her parent..

The appeal of this movie, I think...for me...is that working with the elderly for so many years has reserved a special place in my heart for people who are aging..and perhaps journeying the end roads of their lives...

So...to me..On Golden Pond is one of those laugh a little/cry a little movies... and rightfully has earned a spot on my favorite movie list..(not to mention that the musical score is beautiful..and the lakeside scenery seems custom made
for daydreaming..

I love when Norman and (the young) Billy Ray go fishing...this is when and how they first came to "like " one another...again...it's the people thing..people and relationships..that makes me like that part of the movie..

..and so..I chose this image that reminds me of On Golden Pond...a movie that I have always loved..and enjoy watching over and over again...maybe because I see a little bit of myself in each of the characters..
