Saw famed neurologist and author Oliver Sacks do a book talk at 6th & I last night. Even though he’s half blind, half deaf, and 77 years old, the talk was insightful and entertaining. His new book The Mind’s Eye is a series of case studies on how people deal with various visually affecting brain disorders, such as the inability to distinguish faces (something that Sacks has suffered from all his life). I’m about half way through, and as always, it’s a great read.
Here is Magic Mind off Earth Wind & Fire’s monster 1977 album All ‘N All. The record is a Brazilian inspired R&B funk masterpiece that proved the band was more than just singles. Take a chance and free your mind y’all.
