Despite all the travel annoyances, the impossibility of getting flowers and balloons in downtown LA, it was an AMAZING time I shall never forget!! I’ll have an hour by hour review of the weekend as soon as I recover.
“The End” was fantastic. In the end it’s always about people and the bonds we form with them. These bonds last through lifetimes and until “it all ends.”
I’m flying to LA in the morning (22nd) for my Lost weekend and Jay and Jack’s Lost finale party! After I return I’ll post a trip report. I’ll also have some thoughts on the finale and Season Six. Plus, I’ll finally do the Tangled Roots podcast !awards!!! It’s going to be a crazy weekend!!
Goodbye to Lost and to five years of one wild and amazing journey.
No, it’s not Lost related, but Bumbershoot is one of the greatest things in the world, so check it out!
A poem about discovering Lost.
Cool Siam night
Cut and stitched with surgical precision
Heart twisted into isolation and ugliness
Brilliant, vivid images across my TV screen
Flawed men and women, also tangled from their pain
My mind absorbed, my attention drawn away from the scars
Hours pass like moments
Late night viewing
Do not leave my room
Quick room service breaks
Cannot tear my eyes from the screen
I am on an island, unnamed, hidden
Everything else is forgotten
Cover my eyes, throw things at the flickering screen
The story feels real
Thank you for taking me to another place
Where the cuts and tangles can, for an hour, be forgotten
The Bittersweet Ending is Only a New Beginning.
