Re: [Harp-L] Tim Moyer

Tim did a few songs with (I think I remember this correctly) a guy named Ed
Kliman for the Harp-L compilation CDs I produced back in the late 1990s.
 The songs were great and the harp playing was creative and tasteful.  One
particular tune I remember was called "Temptation".

Tim, best wishes for a speedy recovery.  Strokes are weird... They say
about a year is the "magic window" for return of function.  That he can
still communicate effectively is a huge benefit.  I make orthoses (braces)
for many stroke patients and some of them graduate out of the braces
because their function has returned, others don't.  Even the best
neurologists are still just making educated guesses when they make
predictions about stroke recovery.

I'll keep you in my thoughts, Tim.  Hope you are able to read this or
someone who is close with you will pass my words along.
