Being here is like that scene in Beauty & the Beast where he gives her an entire library. It’s taking all my energy not to cry over all the beautiful books.  (at The Library of Congress)

Spent the day filming in New Jersey and spent the evening in Philadelphia. Amazing city. Great food, fantastic history… Of course, I geeked out at Independence Hall and recited an impassioned oratory on its significance to Vasant. He loves me for it. ;) (at Independence Hall)

"Let us strive on to finish the work we are in to bind up the nation’s wounds…" - President Lincoln. 

Pretty much sums up for us why we’re making this film, and why we’re in DC to finish #promisedlanddoc despite the financial and political obstacles we’ve encountered. We’re hoping it will benefit those who have allowed us to tell their story. Reading these words is a huge encouragement to us as we push towards the finish line in filming. (at Lincoln Memorial)

Happy to back out on the road for the film. The next week involves two Portland visits, Port Orchard, Willapa Bay on the coast, and Canada. Fingers crossed for affordable gas prices and decent traffic. (at Interstate 5)

Whenever one of you beautiful tumblr people come visit us, my heart just bursts with joy. Today caffeinatedcephalopod (the beautiful Jules) and her son Cody let vasantsamudre, clairesalcedo and I take them to dinner, coffee and, as a special request from Cody, go to the Lego Store.

Cody and V have been Lego bros since we all met in person in 2010, going back and forth between Seattle and Oregon for Lego adventures while Jules, Claire and I find someway to occupy our time. We’re really unnecessary to their Lego enjoyment.

I love them so much.

Also, Vasant and I built Lego versions of ourselves, which you can see above. His action figure is called “Big Trouble” and mine is “Producer Fix-It Lady.” The wrench is both for fixing problems and starting them.

Great night.

Just a bit of the finale Vasant and Ben rigged up for the end of the Fourth of July show. Every year they step up their pyrotechnic game a bit more (next year they want to rig electronic switched and run it from the uPad, though Vasant points out they say that every year.)

My Dad, who used to run it and trained them, just sits back and enjoys the display now with the rest of the crowd.
