So, I just finished watching the last episode of Lost. It took six years of my life to watch this show. I have to admit, I was left with a strange feeling. It wasn’t what I expected. I am not sure I liked it. I am not sure I didn’t like it. I am somewhere in between.
What I did like about the closing were the connections. What moved me was the way people were reunited. I saw these folks who had become community together get ripped apart and in the final episode they are brought back together.
I was moved by the emotions lived out on the screen, by the way they overcome obstacles to be joined once more together. I felt a tug on my heart as I watched these folks recognize what they had lost and what they had found again.
I think that the real message for me is how incredible my family and friends are to me. I am so blessed with the number of people who are special to me. I want to remember to not take them for granted. In fact, in many ways, I would be lost without them. Thanks everyone for making my life rich!
