| Quiet and Beautiful
A very unassuming, quiet work of art. Absolutely gorgeous. The "new" doctor shows little emotion in her face, but you very vividly feel the emotion you know she is feeling inside.

The "old" doctor shows his feelings more readily, but only because he has grown to call the small town home.

A very beautiful glimpse into two beings as they ingest and feel their way through. The flow is slow, deliberate, and effortless.

Without spoilers, I did find one thing troubling. The "new" doctor's interactions and point of view, in relation to the father who "skipped town" seemed quite out of character for someone who is trained in Psychology as part of their medical training. Lower forms obviously would take her view, but for the doctor to do it, seemed completely out of character for a mature, educated woman. I found myself wincing, "what...?"
