CHRISTMAS 2013 turned into a powerful audio affair--but looking back, Christmas Day has always been better with special sounds.
This year started with Christmas greetings from Oregon arriving in a three-minute audio clip published by extended family using Audioboo, a free social service. The day's music included a lot of seasonal tracks, some I've shared during December Audioboo moments throughout the month. I sent a three-minute Skype video to Arizona, using my phone to record the decorations around the house. And best of all, I was able to reach my 80-something mom on her cell phone and her hearing aid boosted my wind-swept voice to clear levels.
I started the day outside with the reindeer, recording a short audio clip that reflected on the gift of connectivity that I enjoyed throughout 2013. From the sound of things, 2014 will be a much better year for our family--and I hope the same good tidings extend to yours.
