“Dear Tom, I like and understand the metaphor of the spinner. I was surprised that (William) James had as much understanding of human capacity, habits, etc. I did find the quote to the right of the spinner photo a bit obtuse. But the rest of his quotes were very revealing. You make a good case for all of us (with or without a stroke) doing our homework to keep the spinner moving briskly. Your video was masterful. It shows that someone who has experienced a stroke can make a remarkable recovery verbally. The article demonstrated the recovery in written skills, but someone else could have written it. The video is undeniably you. Since the video reinforces the article in content it actually validates that you authored the article. The combination must be very encouraging to folks who are in the midst of the struggle with Aphasia. Never prouder to be Tom Broussard’s friend. Warm regards.” Winn P., first visitor after my stroke and longtime friend, Maine (7/17/2020).
