Lessons Learned from LOST

Even though we are constantly working, we do find time to relax on the bus. Among the most popular way is watching TV shows, as it is relaxing and allows us to keep doing some work while we’re watching. I recently finished re-watching one of my all-time favorite shows: LOST. There are so many things to love about this show, but I won’t bore you with my long list. I bring it up in this blog because, since starting with Bus 52, there’s a part of my brain that is now constantly listening to background music, and as background music goes, LOST has some of the best. Michael Giacchino’s score is groundbreaking and thought provoking. What awes me about it is how much it can do with so little. It lets you breathe in between notes, letting the emotion sink in without hitting you over the head.

As I’ve been noticing this, I’ve been striving to do more with less in our Bus 52 music (Random Acts of Flowers is an early example of this). But I’ve also been trying to incorporate these lessons into my daily life. I’ve been striving to breathe more, appreciating moments rather than cramming my life full of clutter. If you want a good series to check out, I highly recommend LOST. Even though it’s already ended, the show has fantastic moments, great characters, and unlike many shows has a very nice beginning, middle and end. And, of course, fantastic music.
