John's ability to paint word pictures is captured in this excerpt: "And if Pera is having difficulty today relating to those around her what does it matter? Distracted Pera, the birds in her thoughts raise their carols declaring their Maker's praise. Quietly engaged in the scene about her yet apart in their songs, she drifts on an ocean of green that stretches across the valley floor. The mountains and hills roll in like breakers, slow as glaciers. Her silent praises go out with joy. The Comforter, her Comforter, walks in this orchard. He sings, the few remaining birds hush recognizing the melody He gave them. Hearts ring and He tarries a moment, and all the trees of the field clapped their hands." ~from Aequus Nox
John's voice can be irreverent, silly, and painfully honest but always returns to grace--as all seasons with God do.
