Mighty capable men? Not sure I am feeling very creative at the moment. How about Tuesday Tantalizing Threads? Crystal, I would be interested in exploring the following thread:
1) Honor – DG has given us a modern day fairy tale set in factual times. This is such a departure from many of the contemporary stories we enjoy come to life in TV or movies. I am thinking of the Narnia movies, Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, or Hunger Games. With Outlander, there is no need for an explanation of secular humanism or Christian imagery as in the Narnia stories. Here, we have a love story/fairy tale that does not shy away from Celtic beliefs or Christian beliefs. Jamie’s self esteem and self awareness are closely tied to his faith. Would we find Jamie as compelling if he was not such a strong spiritual presence? I don’t think I would. Well, I am off to keep the popcorn from burning and then pick up daughter from volleyball. Good Night!
