I have some things to post today. First, however, this gem from tumblr: The Doctor doesn’t make people extraordinary.
I have to agree. He doesn’t change people, or make them something other. He sees who they really are. Traveling with him, his companions get the opportunity to see it for themselves. To find their courage, their compassion, their sense of wonder, things that had been hidden or buried all their lives. They get a chance to know who they really are.
Honestly, I think, so do his fans. Do you think about courage more than you did before? Do you think about compassion, wonder, all the things out there in the universe that could be? Do you think about how amazing it is to not know? to discover?
It might just be me, but I doubt it.
