It snowed two nights ago. There was ice, too. I haven’t been to work in two days, and I’m not going again tomorrow. The roads are mostly covered in ice, and so we’ve been home. One cure for cabin fever has been to watch Lost, one of our favorite television shows. We watched it fervently when it was on the air, and it’s nice to watch it again, only this time with the end in mind.
The thing that strikes me so much about Lost is how much the characters are all bottoming out. Of course it’s easy enough to think of yourself as bottoming out when your place has crashed and you are stranded on a desert island, but more than that, all of the show’s characters are emotionally and psychologically hitting rock bottom.
