  1. Nourishing silence is a wonderful phrase to express that experience. I love the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day – it is my time for quiet reading and reflection. “Quiet” by Susan Cain is one of my favorite books; I look forward to exploring some of your other titles. Have a happy New Year.
