It was! I loved the dialogues, the allusions, the meanings.. So many double and triple meanings and contexts - it was remarkable! And kind. And beautiful <3 It is completely necessary for DW to exist in this world so that future generations (if they are still watching) could get inspired to do good and to think and to learn and to be compassionate. Just that.
