- The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. I thoroughly enjoyed this heartbreaking tale of a 91-year-old shut-in suffering from the early stages of dementia and the general disrespect the elderly receives from society. Mr. Grey finds motivation to get his affairs in order after meeting a young lady almost 75 years his junior. She draws him out of his shell and he begins to connect the dots between his past and present thanks to an experimental neurological treatment that will ultimately take his life. Knowing he has no future, Mr. Grey sets out to right old wrongs and reclaims his dignity in the process.It is a beautiful story of grace and redemption.
- August birthdays. Some of my favorite people have August birthdays, including my Marlie and my grandma Millie. Most individuals born in August fall under the astrological sign of Leo. I don't normally pay attention the zodiac, but according to Wikipedia Leo is a fire sign. That explains a lot! They are also considered extroverts who are semi-compatible with the Taurus sign (that would be me). Anyway, I found this cool artwork of a Leo and Taurus at Arte Kjara.She has some cool DIY art projects!
