Letting Go

By Isabella Carr All Rights Reserved ©

Humor / Other


Sometimes the hardest thing in life is being able to let go. For some, this would mean freeing themselves of the emotional, psychological, and physical baggage that they may carry with them in tightly packed, orderly little suitcases underneath their eyes, and within their pockets. But, for three un-expecting strangers, all in little worlds of their own, it meant coping with the frayed ends of grief, and a bunch of skimming rocks; venturing to extremes to overcome acrophobia; and protesting drunk. It meant clutter, tall buildings and irony; forgiveness, fearlessness and, most importantly, moving forwards.


Three strangers, three countries, three stories. What do they all have in common? Easy, they all live with the echo of an illness. One, a seven-year-old boy from Australia, battling the loss of his older brother and a demanding hoarding disorder; another, an eighteen-year-old girl from America dealing with acrophobia, the fear of heights, and venturing to extremes; the last, a forty-five-year old man from Scotland overcoming the last strands of cancer, his crazy-ex wife and his strong connection with the liquor store five doors down.

Three stories, three countries, three strangers, and they somehow all get mixed up.
