For several years Dan has created a holiday greeting card featuring a few of his best photos for the year. He takes pride in careful printing in order to create a keepsake. It's his way of making a contribution to holiday cheer.
This year, he ran into a series of technical obstacles, starting when his printer ceased functioning; in addition, his old iMac is limping like an aging athlete. So he ordered a new iMac and a new printer, but they haven't yet arrived. He plans to create a card to celebrate the new year.
I'm taking advantage of the situation to do something he would never do: to send an online greeting containing photos of ourselves.
As many of you well know, the major event of 2012 for us was a cross-country expedition to view art museums. We covered 8700 miles and toured 42 museums. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.

at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.

|A major goal of the trip for me was to see a retrospective of wall designs by Sol LeWitt at the Massachussetts Museum of Contemporary Art, MASS MOCA, in North Adams. This was a thrilling day for me.|
