I can look out my living room window as I type these daily musings. A gigantic fuchsia with fine red flowers gently taps on the window, blown by the ever present wind. It graces the entire width of my window front to remind of beauty, of persistence and longevity. As fall withers the flowers and changes the color of the leaves it asks me to remember that winter can be a time for moving vibrancy inward for rest and rejuvenation. The balance of rest and exertion is ever important in nature and nurtures us well if we heed its rhythm.
