Moving On

Five years ago today.

Just five years ago, we all bid a bittersweet farewell with LOST. It was such a beautifully written show that took me on an emotional journey with incredibly diverse and unique characters. They were all individual in their personalities and they came from different places and somehow ended up on the plane that would crash land on this mysterious island. It was a mystery show, but it was character driven with so much depth. I will never meet another Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Charlie, etc. in my life. The score led me on a visceral experience. There is such a heartbreaking quality to the strings. To this day, I cannot listen to the soundtrack without tears welling in my eyes.

I will always remember where I was when I watched the finale. I even changed my plane ticket, so I could watch the finale in the U.S. It was such an emotional experience for me, because I felt like after all the emotional investment in the characters, I was there on the island with them. I endured their pain and suffering and I was ready for them to have a happy ending. At the end, they were all together. They were safe. They were happy. They were grateful. They moved on. Since the show ended in 2010, have I moved on? I don't think I can ever really invest myself in a drama again. LOST had me and will always have me. It was life changing for me. I am so grateful to be alive.
