What a lovely tribute. We are better for having people like Dr. Sacks on this earth.
Yes, we most definitely are.
This is some of the finest writing I've ever had the privilege to read.
Thank you, Mary! That means a lot to me.
I read your Sunday post about Oliver Sachs and it was so heartfelt. This one is even more so. I kind of feel like you did know him - you did meet him on another level. You were/are connected with someone who had uncommon insight, as you do.And Elizabeth, that is the most gobsmackingly beautiful picture of you I've ever seen. I'm copying it and printing it so that I can frame it and have it here where I come to talk with my inspirational and lovely friend.Love, Liv
I went "over there" to read your second tribute to Oliver Sacks and hung on every word of it as I did your first. Btw, have you seen this article about him, published weeks before he passed away? http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2015/04/oliver-sacks-autobiography-before-cancerIt contains fascinating excerpts from some 14 notebooks recounting conversations between the journalist and Sacks in the 1980's intended for a biography of him. The two became fast friends but the project was sacked for an interesting reason.
