  1. I just finished reading On the Move A Life by Oliver Sacks and left mesmerized and sad, in some way, realizing the fact that Oliver is no longer..it was my first read book of Dr Sacks. I kept googling to read more about him since then and came to read your eulogy for Dr Sacks..and touched by it. It almost felt like I was reading my own feelings for Dr Sacks.. Thanks for the eulogy.
