The Journey Continues

My journey through the LOST Encyclopedia
continues almost daily.
Now it leads back to wear it began, 
to the beginning of the book.

Tara Bennett sent me an autographed bookplate 
signed by her and Paul Terry.
It also includes an inscription.

I am beyond thrilled to have the signatures
of both authors of The LOST Encyclopedia
grace the inside cover. 

Thank you Tara and Paul for all of your hard
work and attention to detail.

Note: I knew Tara would be attending SDCC 2011,
and I hoped to meet her and have her sign
my LOST Encyclopedia. I carried the incredibly
heavy book around for two days until I got *smart*
and just put the dust cover in my backpack.
Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts
I never got to meet Tara in person. 
Next year.....

Moving On

The final page of The LOST Encyclopedia shows
Christian Shephard moving into the light.

 "fin" by M. Brady Clark is an 19 x 25 2 Color Serigraph,
 printed on #80 lb. French Paper Dur-O-Tone butcher extra blue stock. 

Closeup detail #1:

Closeup Detail #2:

My print is #2/50. It is more of a powder blue color
 in person than in the image on his site.

 I was compelled to purchase the final LOST cast photo.
"The Sanctuary" is an 10"x8" print of the cast in the sanctuary of the church
after their "awakenings" and reunion. It is a limited edition print of 815. 
My print is numbered 162/815. Mario Perez was the photographer. 
Below is closeup image of the photograph, and my framed copy.

This is the final entry in My Journey Through The LOST Encyclopedia.
But my journey is far from over. My collection is ever expanding and
evolving and I'm sure new items will be added to various entries
over the coming months and years.

LOST became so much more than just a television show to me.
It expanded my mind, stimulated my imagination, provided
introductions to an amazing group of people I am proud to call
my friends. So I cannot heed Christian Shephard's words.
I am never letting go.

 I am LOST forever.

He managed to surprise with with one of the
 most magnificent gifts that I have ever received.

In addition to her acting roles, Sheila Kelley
is also an exercise guru with her series of videos:
 The S Factor - Strip Exercise for Life
While not LOST-related,  they ARE fun and effective.

before performing her pole dance in Expose'....
(no comment on why I own the videos)

I have also written to Ms. Kelley, requesting an autograph.
I'll update this post if/when I receive a response.

Zoe is included in Don Pinset's spectacular
