From Texas Public Radio:
Avrel Seale was a published author and semi-professional musician in Austin who had the world on a string until he hit the mid-century mark of his life.
That’s when everything he knew fell apart. In 2017, he had a devastating stroke. He lost use of his strumming hand. But he still found a way to continue making beautiful music on his guitar.
“I can’t play everything I used to play on guitar, but I can still play guitar,” he said.
He wrote a book about it too. Through music and writing, he found his way back to life.
