Oliver Sacks Reflects on Turning 80

A well-respected professor of neurology at NYU weighs in on what it feels like to turn eighty…

Most interesting for me is when people like Dr. Sacks have always been the youngest one in their workplaces, their school cohorts, etc. – as my daughter is now in her kindergarten class –  they still feel like the youngest one in old age.

Does that make confronting the mortality of one’s peers easier or harder, I don’t know? Confronting one’s own mortality must be harder in that case. What do you think?
