"Autumn in Keamyland"

Since I seem to have nothing interesting to say about Lost at this time for some reason, here is a lovely picture of autumn foliage from the mystical forest in Keamyland, for your viewing pleasure -- courtesy of the fertile minds at 'Keamy's Paradise' blog (see sidebar links). People have written sentimental songs about autumn in New York and Vermont, but I have a feeling that seeing this vegetation in the woods would inspire some pretty interesting emotions as well.

Leaves in your neighborhood should be looking like that too Capcom. Minus the screaming Keamy hopefully.

I think the biggest problem in terms of thinking about LOST right now is that I have no idea where Season 5 might start. At the end of S1 we had the "what's in the Hatch" mystery, S2 - what do the Others want with Jack, Kate, Sawyer; did Michael and Walt really leave? S3 - just total WHAT?

But given the ending of S4 I feel comfortable stating that S5 will be how the O6 gets back to the Island interspersed with what happened on Island leading up to Locke ending up in the coffin. So I know starting point A, morbid Jack, Ben and Bernie (aka Locke) and I feel confident I know ending point of Season 5 Z getting back to the Island. But I feel complete uninterested in speculating about how to get from A to Z. There's great danger that I would get more wrapped up in my own possible storylines and end up disappointed with TPTBs. (I know because I saw me do it end of S2 into S3.) But they didn't leave us a "what's in the Hatch/who's in the coffin" mystery to speculate over, so that leaves me with nothing.

Yes, things are beginning to get colorful around here too. Even more so probably higher in the Smokies. I bet where I was in NY is in full bloom orange and red by now. I miss it.

You know, what you just said is exactly how I feel! And you're right, there really isn't anything to think about like with the other seasons, except for the Cheng vid, and we've already squeezed as much as we could get out of that for now. It's a weird feeling. But you've managed to think up some interesting things to ponder on your blog. :-)

memphish, there's the comic-con video with Dr. Chang in 1978. I wouldn't put it past them to start there, though I think it might start with two stories that are not the ffs or fbacks. Ben & Jack in April 07 talking about what they need to do. Cut back (but to "real time") Locke meeting Alpert and the Others and what starts to happen there. Locke-centric is the logical first episode for Season 5, and I can see how the current events of 2007 will move as quickly as the Island from 2004-2007. Here's a thought, if Locke left the Island by moving it, did the Island get pushed forward even closer to 2007?

See that's the thing Wayne. I could jump off some point like that, drive myself nuts writing really bad fanfic that I'd be way too embarrassed to let anyone read, get way over invested in those bad ideas and then be let down when it turns out to be 6 episodes of Ben and Jack locked in cages with Locke's coffin while Kate wears fewer and dirtier clothes.

I'm more content to wait and see than to try to speculate, and there's not that concrete question like "Who's in the coffin?" to go round and round on.

"...6 episodes of Ben and Jack locked in cages with Locke's coffin while Kate wears fewer and dirtier clothes."

LOL X-D

BTW, welcome back to blogging land Wayne!!! :-D Glad that problem is fixed.

If I start seeing faces on the leaves, it's probably time for me to go to Santa Rosa, right?

I was really glad to know that you all saw them too. Whew!!

Capcom said...

LOL!

I get what you mean, memphish. I just wait, as well, hoping for the excitement. But as a writer, I'm stuck with visualizing the first episode, I cannot stop that. Its not a guessing game, its more like, well, learning, maybe. I've been writing 28 years now and I can't enjoy half the stuff I watch UNLESS I zone myself out with vanilla ice cream. That helps.

By the way, Capcom. I had been bugging my friend Harry Fassl, who just passed away, about things like Faraday cages, he'd email me back, and after he died his gal Diana mentioned he had a sudden interest in physics and I blame myself, yet I know he was quick to want to learn new things. Maybe this whole life/death thing is a Faraday cage itself (the most common example being a credit card).

I vote for Hagen Das French vanilla! (with Kaluha poured on top)

Hey Wayne, I hope that you don't mean that you blame yourself in a negative way! If you got your friend into something new, he was having a good time learning in a new direction and that's a good thing, I believe. Learning something new is always good for the spirit. So you did him a good
turn with that. :-)
