John's podcasts and poems are frozen still moments recorded as mental photos that run in the readers imagination like full films. As both participant and chronicler John removes himself from the action, makes his observations quickly (and hopefully cogently) and then escapes. If John is a good observer, he sees things that by themselves are extraordinary revelations about each of us which seem as caricatures rooted in ordinary life and amplified by the focus of each persons mind on the other ourselves. In other words, if a kid is an indefatigable nose picker with bluster all his own we get a complex message about human behavior that we got from an unmentionable source: us. Long after hearing John's podcasts and poems, the scenes he describes live "rent free" in the readers mind.
