The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey

I’m a big Samuel L. Jackson fan. And I’ve been devouring his new Apple TV+ series, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. Here’s the description of the six-episode series: 

“The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey” stars Samuel L. Jackson as Ptolemy Grey, an ailing man forgotten by his family, by his friends, and by even himself. Suddenly left without his trusted caretaker and on the brink of sinking even deeper into a lonely dementia, Ptolemy is assigned to the care of orphaned teenager Robyn, played by Dominique Fishback. When they learn about a treatment that can restore Ptolemy’s dementia-addled memories, it begins a journey toward shocking truths about the past, present and future.

Here’s the trailer:

If you watch the series, let me know what you think.


What I’m Listening To…
“Coming Home” by Drew and Ellie Holcomb

Here’s another one I shared with fans/followers of the concert venue I run — (ware)HOUSE concerts

Since concerts are on hold for a while more, I’ve been sending periodic Song of the Day emails to the list. 

I thought you’d like this one that I shared with the list yesterday.

Also, I share ALL of the songs on public Apple and Spotify playlists. Here are those playlist links:

Words to Ponder
re: Procrastination

“Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it’s the easiest to rationalize. We don’t tell ourselves, ‘I’m never going to write my symphony.’ Instead we say, ‘I am going to write my symphony; I’m just going to start tomorrow.’

from “The War of Art” by Steven Pressfield and Shawn Coyne
