Neruda was a genius.
I had a very negative reaction to a lesson during church last week, and as I attempt to process why I reacted the way I did, I came across this blog post which helps a little.
I think the best point he makes is in the last paragraph:
“I think one of the most important lessons I’ve learned over the past few years is that just because I don’t have the same concerns as someone else, doesn’t make their concerns invalid or not worthy of my attention or consideration. Just because something doesn’t offend me, doesn’t mean it’s not offensive. Part of learning to mourn with those that mourn is having the patience and the curiosity to seek to understand another person’s pain, even (or especially) if it doesn’t immediately resonate with me.” — Brady “”
So, the thought just occurs to me. (NB, I haven’t seen Nightmare in Silver or the prequel stuff for The Name of the Doctor yet, so don’t flame me if this obvious.)
What if the reason the Doctor has met Clara so many times is related to the whole Bad Wolf thing?
You know how the TARDIS and Clara have this uneasy relationship at best? What if somehow, Clara’s consciousness is sucked into the TARDIS’s time vortex, somehow duplicated, and sent all over time and space.
This is what basically happened to Rose at the end of Series 1, right? She said:
I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words. I scatter them … in time, and space. A message to lead myself here
So, what if Clara is doing the same thing? Something bad happens to the Doctor, and it’s just Clara and Sexy, and they have to merge to send out a message to the Doctor to get him back. And the message is Clara.
Fun fact : I can iron 15 shirts in the same amount of time as two episodes of Supernatural
My buddy, Ammon Bratt, is raising money to go to South Africa this summer, where he will perform in several benefit concerts. Ammon is a super talented pianist, and I think South Africa deserves to hear him play. If you have a few spare dollars laying around, consider donating. It’s a great cause, plus if you donate $20 or more, you can get a CD of Ammon’s music. — Brady “I am raising money to go to South Africa to perform in benefit concerts to raise money for hospitals, schools, and homeless shelters.”
