Why the Doctor?

When I’ve a gig on but I know it’s going to be difficult, because I’m feeling too tired-physically or emotionally-to perform well, I suck it up and pretend to be the Doctor.

Not any particular one, just a possible future incarnation, and only in my own head, until I feel picked up enough to be myself again.

Why the Doctor?

He/they remind(s) me of so many things, and moments, and helps open the doors to my own memories and other inspirations.

I can be arrogant, self-absorbed, condescending, insensitive, domineering, an attention seeker…and so can the Doctor.

But he also tries to be better, he strives to do the right thing and only desires to help mankind (and other sentient beings) be the best they can be. Plus he’s a snappy dresser, spontaneous, brainy, kind, very entertaining and he never, ever, gives up.

And these strike me as good qualities to aspire to.
