The Movie Whore All time #2 and the “Cuz I fished with him” defense

The Movie Whore All time #2 and the “Cuz I fished with him” defense

Willis is the only suspect in the alleged murder of Jewel Mae “Cookie” Orcutt. Throughout the film, as you saw in the trailer above, one of the deputies says he knows that Willis is innocent “Cuz I fished with him.”

Here’s why that is a reasonable defense.

If you have never gone fishing, quiet is one of the things that is going on. It’s not easy to find someone you can share silence with and feel comfortable. We always “feel the tension in the air” when we are in silence as if it was as loud as thunder disturbing the peace we should be exercising in this shared silent moment in nature. 

It’s in silence the most intimate things we are ignoring from deep within come to the surface. These character defining or refining revelations shared with someone you can share silence with often is a strong bond that transcends friendship and family.

For me going fishing has little to do with catching anything and more to do with getting away from everything and everyone to enjoy the deafening sounds of nature. It’s a sacred space and those you share it with you know better than most.

While it’s important to have a place within to retreat to find peace, it is equally important to find people in life you can share that peace with. Companionship comes in forms other than romantic and it is often the non romantic companions in life that are the people we are truly closest to. We need and seek for companionship more than we need romance only we think of it as searching for that perfect romance instead of finding that perfect companion regardless the form. We limit ourselves to a fools quest in doing this.

I’m always seeking companionship in various forms and never seeking romance, that I let surprise me.

Seek and you will find or so I hear and so far it’s living out to be true.
