This is one of the most moving interviews I've ever read. "I always felt like I was passing as a normal person in the world away from the orphanage. So acting was second nature to me" is enormously touching and understandable to so many of us, those who have not grown up in an orphanage but for other reasons that life brings...John's identifying with "the odd one out" (the "Island of Misfit Toys" that one can feel), and the absolutely cinematic vision of the long-cloaked Father leading the boys to their dinner...Jon, this is a beautiful profile, and you've imparted so much to us through your interview of this wonderful man. Thank you for capturing his moving and profound words, and spirit. This is a piece I must read over and over again for the words, images and messages to sink in: it is that rich.
