New tribute to the film . . .
It's been so long since we've posted anything! I need to add the photos from the DC trip--from back in November!
Today we got a very special message:
I have just watched Luminous Journey--albeit a few years late! And it is marvelous. Just magnificent! A friend kindly loaned it to me - the last three days I've watched parts of it every day, savoring and going back to catch parts I didn't quite remember or get. Thank you so much for this extraordinary film!! Linda Covey
Then, after I thanked Linda, she wrote:
I think everyone should see this. It's perfect for deepening, for firesides, or meditating upon the life of Abdul Baha. Every single Bahai should have this in their library!
I am amazed at how much you pulled together- so much history of the States at that time even--how buildings looked, along with treasured and priceless pictures. The dress of the period- and so many pictures of Abdul Baha, his carriage, car, snapshots...more personal, up close - and 'human'! (I'm sure you know what I mean.) It's awe-inspiring and made me more determined than ever. I was wishing I'd had it for my religion and human culture classes in China.
The story line is so clear. You certainly give a full and complete picture of His journeys. I really liked how the film made its transition from one location to the next one. Very clear. And the music is so soothing and beautiful! It fit the film perfectly.
I watched all the credits, recognizing names here and there. And I wondered how those individuals felt- especially all the Baha'is, as they recreated (lived) Abdul Baha's journey. Maybe on your webpage, you could put some of their stories, how they were impacted?
