An ongoing daily series of scenes for a Steve Jobs biopic.
It’s a narrative experiment. It’s not going to follow a neat dramatic arc. It’s going to be a little episodic and random. Much like the subject matter.

“BOSCUTTI’S STEVE JOBS” SCENE 139
2011 – JOBS FAMILY HOME – PALO ALTO – MORNING
It’s September. Jobs is sitting in bed, wearing a hospital gown and holding his copy of Paramhansa Yogananda’s “Autobiography of a Yogi.” More medical equipment surrounds the bed.
Every breath he takes is excruciatingly painful. Two of Jobs full-time nurses, Tracy and Arturo, are by his side. One of them monitors the equipment. A glass of water on the bedside table is half full.
Jobs’ wife, Laurene, is there with their son, REED, 20, who is trying not to cry. Laurene breathes out slowly.
The more Jobs realizes his unity with spirit, the less he can be dominated by matter.
The soul is ever-free. It is deathless because birthless.
It cannot be regimented by stars.
