As a photographer I tried to imagine what the colors of the wind looked like. An image of the Northern Lights appeared in my mind. Listening to it I was captivated by the lyrics. I had never seen the Disney Movie, Pocahontas. The root cause of our damage to Mother Earth comes from the idea that the resources of the earth are just dead things that can be owned and exploited. You think you own whatever land you land on The earth is just a dead thing you can claim. But I know every rock and tree and creature Has a life, has a spirit, has a name. My walks through the woods are much deeper now that I am reminded that everything has a spirit. I commune with the plants, trees, rocks, birds, squirrels and everything. You think you own whatever land you land on The earth is just a dead thing you can claim But I know every rock and tree and creature Has a life, has a spirit, has a name.

You aren't engaged or married or anything, you can't just know that she won't see the light and remain crazy Mormon forever. In other words, eternal marriage really is worth it, I think.

As a man who married a non-Mormon woman, my story has a slightly different view point, but it comes down to essentially the same principles. What's not to like about being a doctor's wife.
