    No conversation required, nothing needs buying, cooking or eating or drinking. No one needs entertaining. it's been good but now I'm itching to take down the cards and get on with 2016. I need to take up my exercise again, get back to normal eating and probably cut down on alcohol
    Also, the frost this morning felt like a normal winter. Some good crisp days wouldn't come amiss.
    Now I'm going to find a poem to read.

    How about 'The Journey of the Magi' in preparation for the Epiphany on Wednesday, the real 'end' of the Christmas season?

    Those words are some of the softest, most soothing words in the English language...

    I think that poem deals with suicidal thoughts of the poet - being "half in love with easeful death" - but is nonetheless beautiful for all that.
