That's what I did for Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Person of Interest and every other show since LOST.
See, I watched LOST in real time and it was AGONIZING to a) watch commercials and b) wait in between episodes and in between seasons.
After every episode we used to gather around at work and breathlessly theorize about what the last episode's cliffhanger meant.
It took years off my life.
So, on the advice of my mother, I finally started watching Longmire.
Unfortunately, it was too awesome to pace out, and so I finished the fourth season tonight.
And the 5th season isn't coming until the fall.
And I'm sad. If you haven't seen this show - start watching it - it's spectacular in every way.
I love the bigger sense of justice in the show - it's most definitely a Western ethic - and I get it. It might be weird if you if you are from a more crowded place, but it's definitely something you *get* if you live in the Southwest, or have any contact with big spaces and tribal nations - a big part of the allure is that it's filmed in New Mexico, which is my favorite place on earth.
Walt has such a transcendent sense of right and wrong that is larger and more ancient than modern law. And honestly, fairer. Free of some of the noise of modern life. And, as a result, of course, the tragedies are bigger too. It's like Cormac McCarthy, Tony Hillerman and Thomas Hardy got put in a big blender and a TV show came out.
BUT - I now have to wait 9 months to see what happens and I'm not happy about it.
Not happy about it at all.
So I thought I'd pick a sort of western theme for today's video. I brought out the In the Meadow stamp set and did a bit of no line watercolor. Super easy and fun to do - the stamp set lends itself to watercolor.
I added a gorgeous sentiment from Concord & 9th By Your Side that I thought really was perfect for this image. The watercolor is my Koi travel set. I combined the Mix-Ability challenge and the Free For All challenge on this card, along with my Longmire tears.
I did a quick fast forward watercolor video for you, in which someone bossy makes a cameo. Wait for it.

I'm listening to a great book about creativity right now - I highly recommend it - my friend Bev Rousch started me on it - and she never steers me wrong.
It's called Big Magic - and the author is the narrator on Audible if you like audiobooks. Highly recommend.
I'll need a lot of audiobook recommendations to get me through 9 months with no Longmire so lay 'em on me, peeps!
