Remakes of popular films and TV series, fashions from the past, reboots and retooled fan favorites and mash-ups. Is everything old new again? Should it be? We’ll discuss and see if we can find new ways to look at it!
Connection, Oneness, spirits, animals, nature, each other

My Bonnie – traditional Scottish folk song, and connects to OUTLANDER!
The origin of the song is often suggested that the subject of the song may be Charles Edward Stuart (‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’): after the defeat of the Prince at the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and his subsequent exile, his Jacobite supporters could have sung the tune in his honour; and thanks to the ambiguity of the term “bonnie”, which can refer to a woman as well as to a man, they could pretend it was a love song.
