Maria wrote a beautiful post remembering Oliver Sacks. To commemorate this irreplaceable man, she asked artist Debbie Millman to create a piece of art illustrating the passage that captures not only the heart of that heartening story, but the spirit in which Dr. Sacks inhabited and exited our world. The artwork is available as a print and I am donating all proceeds to the Oliver Sacks Foundation.
