“Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination.” ~ Oliver Sacks
Happy Birthday to Oliver Sacks, neurologist and author of many books including the very popular The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, and Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain. His research and ideas about how the mind works are fascinating; his writing about the same subject is complex, entertaining, and highly readable:
“Language, that most human invention, can enable what, in principle, should not be possible. It can allow all of us, even the congenitally blind, to see with another person’s eyes.”
July 9 is a big day for celebrating birthdays. Happy Birthday to my friends: the very fine writer, Deb R. Lewis, and generous and sympathetic editor, Anna Idol. And to Dean Koontz, Fred Savage, Tom Hanks, Courtney Love, Kelly McGillis, and David Hockney. And the rest of you–you know who you are.
