Steve Johnson is one of those truly remarkable human beings with a quiver of remarkable arrows. He quickly engages those with whom he interacts with the special human qualities of being interesting and interested, then with his powerful and artful bow, sends arrows to their targets. Smart and shrewd, easy to laugh and slow to frustration, his presence in any room, beside any fire adds to the setting immeasurably. I consider myself blessed to have crossed paths with this very fine person and consider him a brother.
