On Jean's website, scroll down towards the bottom. It's interesting to see the house itself, but the shots outside are pretty spectacular, too. It's also sad...the house has a very empty feel to me...like it's been stripped of it's energy and is waiting for its family to come home. But that's probably just me.

Thanks so much for posting that! It is such a beautiful place and now you can really see why Dan loved it so. The video of the tour was so haunting with Dan's music playing but it was so wonderful to see so much of it. It was so sad to see the missing personal items and you are right...it was like the house is lonely and missing its family. I thought it was sold? Boy I what I wouldn't give to be able to walk those grounds. Just when I am missing Dan the most there is some bit like this video that comes along to aid my aching heart. I still can't believe he is gone but I am so thankful for all of the pleasure he has given me. I am so thankful also to Jean for all she is doing to keep Dan's memory alive.

Beautiful home. I hope it sells soon; it needs someone living there.

I think we've joked in the past about the dream of taking a tour of the ranch, but I never truly thought we'd get the opportunity to see inside like this. It's a real treat....almost like being there :-) The walk-thru really gives a good perspective on the layout of the place. Nice having a chance to see some of the rooms we've never seen before. And what an awesome job she did on the video! The music is perfect and compliments the visuals so well. I think this one flows even better than the first.

Yeah, actually there were two previous versions. They were only up for a brief time, and then she took the whole site down. I wondered if she had second thoughts about putting it online, but now that it's back up, I'd guess that she just wanted to do a little more work on it to get it just right, and find a video hosting site that she liked. The first two versions of the video were almost identical in content, but the second one was in a high resolution, wide-screen format, which has a really nice visual quality in full screen.

The current version online is about a minute shorter than the first two. What's missing is a little segment of the walk-thru showing more of the foyer, plus a small office room with Dan's album art and photos & things from his music career on the walls. There are also a couple photos of the master bedroom missing, and a few different landscape views. Other than that the content is pretty much the same, just slightly different effects and sequencing of the scenes. And the current version flows really well, and actually makes a better presentation for the purpose of the video.

In one of Jon Asher's posts a few months back, he wrote about meeting up with Jean in Santa Fe after she had been to the ranch gathering artwork. I assume that's when she filmed the footage for the walk-thru segments. There is a sadness about it, of course, especially thinking of her going there alone and feeling the emptiness of the house. Still, the video is so interesting to see, and the way she used the music really creates the beauty of the piece.
