    Tim, why are you making a play for the Joel Meyerowitz look?

    Seriously, though, hang on in there, buddy – lots of people need you to be around and brighten up the day for them, starting right here.

    For what it’s worth: your arms still look thicker than mine ever were. Must be those bikes…

    Wishing you a speedy recovery back to the best normal you can have.

    Take care

    Good Lord…..

    “You better double dose that morphine and make damn sure I don’t run out!”

    All positive vibes sent via the Cosmic Muffin to you.

    Hoping this is the start of a speedy recovery and a return to health.
    Not sure about the Uncle Fester look, though.

    It makes me very sad to see you in this situation. But at the same time, it makes me confident and happy that you have survived this long surgery well. Now things are looking up again!
    All the best wishes for a fast and good recovery!
    In the meantime I browse through all the great reports here on your website!
    Take care!

    Well, you made it back, looking all…uh, back. Kinda ragged but we’ll get used to the look.

    Speedy recovery, Tim.

    That, sir, in an impressive scar. You have me beat. Chemo is the worst part of it, if you can make it through that you get a pass. You’ve done your time in hell. Wishing you more good days than bad, leading to no bad days at all. Hope you’re up to posting more soon.

    After what you’ve been through, what can I say? Looking good!

    Much appreciation goes out to all your doctors and care providers. There’s nothing like a competent medical team to make a cloudy future look a lot brighter.

    It looks like you are having a really rough ride Tim, surgery can be a bit hard on the old system, but with a fair wind and a wish and a prayer, you WILL make it through to the other side and a good recovery.

    Meanwhile, my turn this week… kidney stone…


    It won’t be long before you are back on your bike, with the wind in your er…

    When you posted that you were taking some time away, I assumed it was regarding your illness. I am so grateful that the procedure was a success and that you were able to withstand the punishment that an operation like this represents. I imagine everyday is hard and painful. Please know you have a lot of people in this community you’ve nurtured who are pulling for you and rooting for you. I am keeping you in my thoughts and pray for a speedy recovery. Much love.

    The level of connection these images form with your situation as it really was reinforces the power of photography you’ve always known existed.

    And the courage we’ve always found in the greatest images and in your own writing is a serious inspiration.

    Damn, I’m seriously grateful for you, your spirit and your ways of bringing them to us all.

    Thank You for all you share.
    My Best to you,

    Truly, let me know if there is anything you need. You’re running the gauntlet incredibly well, but honestly you don’t really have a choice in the matter. Give ’em hell
