UnRetiring author and neurologist Oliver Sacks (The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, Musicophilia, Hallucinations) just can't stop writing.

In this NY Times essay -- here -- he relishes his upcoming fete with a joie de vivre worth emulating.
Of course, Oliver Sacks sees life through the oddest lenses.
