Miss Feronia's Feeling for Snow

A musical post today. This is a beautiful piece called "Forgiveness" and it's the theme tune to a Danish crime tv show called Ornen (this is not quite how it's spelt but I'm afraid I can't quite seem to put in the Danish 'O' with a line through it). Here it's called The Eagle. I would love to go to Scandinavia and I must say that the cold, vast landscapes that this song conjures up in my mind appeal to the slightly melancholic aspects of my character! The show itself is a little too bleak for my taste, though - if last night's episode is anything to go by - but the music is sublime. Makes me want to have another go at reading Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow which I bought many years ago while travelling through Vietnam and didn't make much headway with. There are no pictures to distract you with this clip - just sit back and enjoy!

I love that too. I can't say I've managed to watch an episode though. I prefer something a little less dark.

Hey, you've been travelling places haven't you. ;)

That's a good piece, and I'd surely like to know how it looks like when you get all the music and visuals combined. Hmm... =D

Hi Feronia,

I believe you have an European heart! We had the first frost this night (too soon...)!

Reading Miss Smilla's Feeling for Snow" while traveling in Vietnam! *smile*

It was snowing all morning here. Quite a record.

To Wurst Semmel -
Yes, the show itself is a little on the heavy side, isn't it. I tend to tune in and out for the theme song at the beginning and the end.

To Stardust -
I guess I have travelled a bit, yes, it's one of my favourite things to do!

To Bodecea -
I have suspected for some time that I have a European heart! Also, it has been unseasonably cold and wet here too.

To Merisi -
Yes, Hoeg's book and Vietnam were quite a contrast! I bought it when I found an English language bookshop, halfway into our trip, at Hue.

I borrowed that book once in a library, but brought it back unread. I didn't like the beginning and I didn't bother reading the rest of it.

I hope you make it to Scandinavia some day; I especially liked Norway.

One day I'll get there!
