It is sad that Oliver Sacks died today. 


I didn't realize that he was gay until I saw the Pink News that announced his passing. 



I like his books. He taught me a lot about how people see in colors, and how damaged brains had helped us to know how the brain work.


Thank you Oliver for teaching me so much through your books. 


I knew about his cancer on the eye when he wrote about his experience in Mind's Eye. 


No word. Just sad.
