The Crossing

Every day she waited at the crossing. Hope to catch a glimpse of the opening. That strange trick of the light that she had only seen once before when she was a small child of three.

Every day at dusk she contrived to be there just incase the opening appeared again. She stayed in the village she was born in, enjoying a full life, marriage, children,grand and great grandchildren. Helping others always she was known to be a kind and generous woman.

As the years went by people gave up asking why she went to the bridge at the end of every day. It just became accepted, part of life.

It was on her hundred and third birthday that as she stood by the bridge that the light changed. She rubbed her eyes and sure enough there was the opening. There was the village and to her astonishment the same young man who had waved to her all those years ago was beckoning to her.

As fast as her old bones could carry her she began to cross the bridge. It was a long bridge and at first she thought she’d never make it across. Strangely the nearer she got to the young man the quicker she seemed able to move.

As she reached the young man he took her hand and asked her why she had taken so long, she smiled at him and as she looked into his eyes she saw her reflection….. She was young again.

The opening closed the moment she stepped through it.

Back in the village no knew what had happened to her. They searched for weeks but she was nowhere to be found. They all decided that she had, had a good innings.

All bar one child who had witnessed the whole incident. He he never told anyone what had happened but every evening at dusk he visited the bridge.

Song Lyric Sunday. 3/9/2019.

It’s Sunday again and time for Song Lyric Sunday. I missed out last week due to being unwell but here I am back like the preverbial bad penny not totally fit but on the right road.

Well this week it’s T.V. music and Jim Adams said: “This week you can write about either the TV show or the song, or both. Everyone should be able to find a song that is featured in a TV show and works with this prompt. Try to find a song that fits the prompt, then write your post.”

I have chosen the theme to The Bridge an absolutely brilliant Scandinavian darker than dark drama. The theme is an absolute perfect match to the story. I fell in love with the theme after 60 secs of hearing.

The theme is by Choir of Young Believers is the musical project of singer, writer and guitarist Jannis Noya Makrigiannis from Copenhagen, Denmark. The band, which consists of Makrigiannis along with a rotating cast of supporting players, has had multiple No 1 hits in their home country of Denmark and was named the “Best New Act” at the 2009 Danish Music Awards. COYB’s music combines folk melodies, orchestral instrumentation, and dark lyrics. More Information here.

The theme is called Hollow Talk.

The series The Bridge is one of most compelling I have ever watched. It is set around an Autistic policewoman, a detective, who has some very strange character traits and comes from a difficult family background.

It is written by Hans Rosenfeldt. A joint creative and financed production between Sweden’s Sveriges Television and Denmark’s Danmarks Radio, it has been shown in more than 100 countries.

The first series begins with the discovery of a dead body exactly on the centre of theØresund Bridge, which links Malmö with Copenhagen, necessitating a joint investigation. Sofia Helin, as the Swedish police detective Saga Norén, stars in all four series. In the first and second, her Danish counterpart, Martin Rohde, is played by Kim Bodnia, and in the third and fourth Thure Lindhardt plays Henrik Sabroe. The first series was broadcast on the Swedish SVT1 and Danish DR1 during the autumn of 2011, and on the United Kingdom’s BBC Four the following spring. More information here.

There are four seasons each as good as the first. I can really recommend it to anyone. You soon get used to reading the subtitles.

Here is a little clip to wet your appetite.
