Oprah’s Finale: A Beautifully Wrapped Gift.


 

~There is rarely a farewell show that lives up to its full potential.

 

For example,  take “The Sopranos.” Suddenly the screen blackens and the viewer is left to make her/his own conclusion.  Does Tony finally get Whacked?   Does his smacker end up in bowl of pasta?  Nobody knows for sure.

 

Or the conclusion of  the greatest comedy ever created “Seinfeld.”  Yes, we find out…the characters were truly all assholes.

 

And even my all time fave. “Sex and the City,” couldn’t  deliver it’s usual Pizzazz & Glitz & Sexiness in the end.

 

But Oprah’s last show kicked some serious ass–

 

Overflowing with profundity, depth, and significance.

 

Oprah offered her audience a beautifully wrapped gift that we can continue opening and savoring into the future.

 

Each layer of tissue paper revealing another life lesson and spiritual tutorial.

 

“The most important thing I’ve learned in all  these years,” Oprah mused:

“It’s that people want to be heard…Want to be seen.   Do you hear me?  Do you see me?”

I don’t know about you, but for 25 years I’ve clicked the television on at 4:00 to have my Oprah experience., my girlfriend time, my intellectual hour of interviews & books & women’s issues.

Sometimes it’s just nice when somebody declares:  “YOU ARE NOT ALONE!”

Oprahs’s last words, “All The Glory To God.”

    Here in England, i didn’t get to see it… yet (it’ll come).
    I got to say, Sopranos was like my all time favourite series and I hated the ending 🙁

      Heavenly Housewife,
      Yeah, Love The Sopranos.
      Oprah delivered, though. Such a perfect ending…beginning.
      Kisses back.

    Kim, I only occasionally watched Oprah but I’m with you on the last Sopranos as much as I loved that show and of course the final Seinfeld flopped so I’m glad to hear that Oprah went out with grace and meaning!

      Yes:
      Meaning. Significance. Depth.
      ….With so much superficiality and suckiness out there…
      Oprah’s last episode shined & glittered.
      I loved loved loved it.

    I agree! Oprah’s last show was a class-act from start to finish. She’s an amazing woman.

        So sorry to only be replying now! I don’t receive notification of your comments as they are only available via RSS which Apple Mac does not support for some strange reason.
        I am currently on Mauritius and heading back home to South Africa at the end of this month. 🙂 We always seem to be a season behind with Oprah for some strange reason so I still have her last episode to look forward to.
        Have a happy day. xoxo

    I’m so sad that I missed the last two shows. I hope they replay them during the day. Oprah is such an inspiration. I really admire her!

    I like Oprah, though she has done some things I’m not crazy about, she has a big heart! And truly cares about mankind.

    If I could have 1/4 of her wealth!

      Yes, Irene,
      I was very angry at O after the interview with James Frey….but she made up
      for that one in the next interview.
      All in all, She really inspires me.

    I’m a little confused. She’s only switching networks, not going away. It’s not like we’ve heard the last from her.

    I have to confess that I had never watched her show, but I read her magazine and catch her website. She is a force and I agree, people want to be seen and heard, and she gave many people a chance. It’s not an easy job being an ICON and it’s not about the room service and all the other perks. I’m waiting for the book.
