Thoughts on the Lost Finale

I said on Sunday that I wasn’t going to talk about Lost anymore in my illustrations, but I didn’t say I wouldn’t write about it. Ok, even if that is a copout, I can’t get some things off of my brain until I flesh them out, so I wanted to write about some general/thematic elements of the finale of Lost. First, let me state for the record that I thoroughly ...

True Redemption

I’m going to break some social rules and blog about an episode of LOST (yet again) that is not the most recent one that aired. But I have not been able to get pasted the episode from March 9th called “Dr. Linus.” I hardly ever guess where they are taking the show before the episode begins, but I’ve got to say I had a sneaking suspicion that they were going ...

All of this can lead to us feeling overwhelmed ...

Part 1: Living A Mystery

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”(Matthew 6:33–34 NIV) One of my favorite TV shows of all time is Lost. I am a huge fan because I think it taps into all of the mysteries in this world, it asks fundamental questions about free will, and it has characters that actually develop and grow as the plot progresses. ...
