I’d like to make a few commments at this time for the benefit of our novice readers. Right now you may be feeling Vorfreude. I know the Doctor is.

Heads up!  Those of you who remenber last year, recall the heart wrenching pain you expressed, when nature played out its cold hard realism.  There is no need to reflect upon those events at this time, but I must say, sometimes you humans forget the basic laws of nature. Be forewarned.

Vorfreude: (German, noun) The joyful, intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures. When we were kids, for example, we experienced an intense Vorfreude the weeks before Christmas. Right now, the Doctor has similar feelings when he thinks about the hatching of our eggs. There is no word in the english langugue that expresses the same meaning.
