Women don't understand art or beauty. They may have their own understanding, but they have no idea how men think about such things.
My son takes pictures of sunsets and sees out of the corner of his eye what nature is doing. My girls have to be told what is pretty. This is strictly my children and my experience. My previous 41 years of experience backs up this same generality. My sister tried so hard to convince me that she had the same intense nature that I did. She is six years older and I was never convinced. It isn't an indictment against women. It just is.
I have said many times before that I love women and value them the way God intends. They just don't have the ability to see the beauty of God's universe the way men do. You need to explain it to them. They can understand it; they just need to be quieted long enough to see it. Women are anxious creatures. Long term views for them necessitate your ability to establish long term security. If you can't provide them with the security, you won't get to appreciate their realization of beauty. It is an awesome thing to witness.
SD had a strong pre-disposition against Europe. The disgust she has displayed for all things European has been long-standing in our household. Recently, she has come to the acceptance that there might be something cool to see in Europe. I look forward to traveling with her to Europe and having her mind open to the beauty that exists there.
