“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.” ~ Anaïs Nin

This video appeared on my tumblr dash today, and it was just what I needed. Dr. Who represents a universe of possibilities, actually, many universes of possibilities. He’s the smartest person in the room and the goofiest. He’s a curmudgeon and a softy. And the people who travel with him represent all of humankind, in all of its whacky silliness, complete with fallable foibles and wicked wisdom.

If you aren’t a Whovian, you won’t enjoy it nearly as much as those of us who are “Dr. Who” devotees. Never mind. It’s epic no matter what.

Enjoy.
