Anyone who knows me can attest to my affinity for the long-running BBC science-fiction drama Doctor Who. The Doctor is a Time Lord, the last of his kind, traveling through time and space as he offers assistance to those in need.

As I was considering a title for my blog, I found this quotation from the Doctor Who Christmas Special: 

"In 900 years of time and space
I've never met anyone who wasn't important."

Much like The Doctor, we all travel from time to time and place to place throughout our lives, but do we attempt to find the best in people, to recognize what makes them tick, to understand their importance in this world? Do we stop at points in time during our journeys to learn life lessons from those around us?

Periodically we do need to apply the brakes to our hectic lives by taking time to reflect upon the importance of those around us: our families, friends, colleagues, pets, or even strangers.

This is what I want to do as I travel through my own time and space. I want to take a moment to appreciate those I encounter, express gratitude to those who have have taught me life lessons, then share these experiences with others.


  1. Amazingly, I didn't know you were a Dr. Who fan. Reflection tends to make us more loving and less judgmental of ourselves and others. May God bless this journey you are embarking upon. I'll share a Carl Sandberg quote that simply puts it in another way.
    “A man must find time for himself. Time is what we spend our lives with. If we are not careful we find others spending it for us. . . . It is necessary now and then for a man to go away by himself and experience loneliness; to sit on a rock in the forest and to ask of himself, 'Who am I, and where have I been, and where am I going?' . . . If one is not careful, one allows diversions to take up one's time—the stuff of life.”

    1. Sheri, what a wonderful quotation you have shared! Thank YOU for your words of inspiration.
