Wisdom …

… A Good Doctor On Dying A Good Death. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The essays are leavened with science, but not overburdened by explanation. When Sacks got his terminal diagnosis, he decided, “It is up to me now to choose how to live out the months that remain to me. I have to live in the richest, deepest, most productive way I can.” He decided to take stock, to write, to travel, to spend time with friends and loved ones, and to tune out anything “inessential” including NewsHour, politics, and global warming.
Dave also sends along a link to the piece by D. Keith Mano that is mentioned in the piece. You have to scroll to the bottom to find it.
