The Same Old Song


Let us hope that Mr. Potter will always be around to save the day.

Lucius Malfoy, as portrayed by English actor, Jason Isaacs, born on this day in 1963.

America’s calling, Harry Potter.

It took some effort for me to get used to Lucius Malfoy being Michael Britten on Awake. A show, by the way, that unfortunately had only one season. But I don’t know how they would have continued the story line.

I disgress. Or do I? Isn’t that where I started?

Isaacs is a brilliant actor. I look forward to seeing him as Captain Lorca on Star Trek: Discovery.

But, we all know that Lucius Malfoy really didn’t want Harry Potter around.

J.K. Rowling wrote brilliantly in the whole Harry Potter series. Isaacs brought Malfoy to life brilliantly on the screen.

What a combination for someone who describes himself as a writer and an actor.

I like it.

I may never write or star in a best-selling series.

But really, that’s not what it’s all about.

It’s about writing for the love of the craft. It’s about acting for love of the art.

Still, there’s lot to be said about figuring out a way to make this a full-time income.

Lots of folks have.

But, by far, the majority of us still keep our day jobs.

And that puts us amongst the Muggles.

Bless their hearts.

We can’t all live in the magical world. We can’t all study at Hogwarts.

And, as much as I’d like to, I can’t disapparate from the meeting I’ll be in when you’re most likely reading this post.

Harry Potter is good, but he’s not good enough to get me out of the meeting and save my Tuesday.

No, as far as the Nine-to-Five of the day job goes, it’s the same old song.

Speaking of which, American baritone singer, (The Four Tops), Levi Stubbs, was born on this day in 1936 (died 2008).
