This was unexpected. I had not planned for this to happen. So it was very much as a third party that I watched (and wrote) about his entrance into the house, the memories that came back to him, and the strange knocking that began to emanate from the trap door in the floor of the guest room closet.

An encouraging, timely, important read. DeRusha's voice was reminiscent of Henri Nouwen, full of grace and kindness. Time for some pruning.
