Above is a link to the directors cut. The version which has only me and Alexander in it. Working with the director Joe Murray, and the crew, was fun and easy. They actually showed up one day at our place here in Encinitas and spent the better part of a day following us around, asking questions, hanging with us on the beach.
Since that day of filming, I've seen some of Joe's other work as a photographer, some amazing shots of Dave and Phil Alvin,
and some of his prior film footage at his website. Beautiful images with a deep sense of feeling, some kind of compassion coming through camera's eye. Some have the gift of the visual and Joe does, ...an extraordinary way of seeing the beauty in the mundane and commonplace.
And this one is the montage version that has been played a lot, over the past few months:
It was a real honor, and honestly quite a surprise, to be chosen to represent California's health care exchange, and be a part in some very small way, of ushering in this new era, of expanding health care for all citizens.
