I don't open web-based holiday cards.

I don't know why.

I bank online. I Twitter. I'm LinkedIn. I am on a social network.

But I just don't open emailed holiday cards. Years ago, they were always a disappointment: some goofy, some caused my computer to crash. 

And, back then, I preferred regular old-fashioned stamped and posted greeting cards. I even sent my own.

But I haven't sent cards for a few years. (If this blog isn't enough sharing of information, fuggedaboudit.)

Of course, technology has advanced. Today's cards probably are fabulous. They probably won't crash my Mac. Maybe I'll start opening cards again.

[a few minutes pass]

OK, now, I opened one…

Here's One From Diane (Thanks, Diane.)
Here's a lovely Christmas card — a slideshow set to music — from the photomeisters at Magnum.

Click here and you will be taken to another site. Click on "play" and enjoy the show. (Turn up your volume for the music.)

Merry Christmas.
