Place in the World – J.H. Oortbridge

The weekly theme is ‘place in the world’. Where do you belong?
Images of the place I live, my place(s) in the world. Number 3: the Oortbridge and the canal.

Water is an essential, crucial and critical element of life in The Netherlands. Half of the country is below sea level so we need to manage water. Each day I pass the J.H. Oortbridge over the canal that leads from Warmond to Katwijk. The canal is – apart from being a means of transportation and recreation –  used to dump excess sweet water into the sea at low tide. This week’s theme ‘place in the world’ associated with the name giver of this bridge is funny: Jan Hendrik Oort was a famous Dutch astronomer and a pioneer in exploring space outside our world.

Place in the World – Music

The weekly theme is ‘place in the world’. Where do you belong?

Images of the place I live, my place(s) in the world. One is a bit hard to grasp: music. ‘Place in the world’ brought me immediately to In My Place by Coldplay. Can this song be about flowers?
Last month, exploring the flower fields with tulips near my village (place), I came across this setting.  Taking this photo, the power lines and the lonely house set the atmosphere; the flowers are almost gone, some are still there. Flowers come and go, and you have to wait another year for them, but singing flowers? Well, it checks boxes, but not all of them. Perhaps I cross lines I should not cross? Do enjoy the song and the photo.

In My Place – Coldplay
In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn’t change
I was lost

I was lost, I was lost
Crossed lines I shouldn’t have crossed
I was lost

Yeah how long must you wait for it?
Yeah how long must you pay for it?
Yeah how long must you wait for it?

I was scared, I was scared
Tired and under prepared
But I wait for it

If you go, if you go
Leave me down here on my own
Then I’ll wait for you (yeah)

Yeah how long must you wait for it?
Yeah how long must you pay for it?
Yeah how long must you wait for it?

Sing it, please, please, please
Come back and sing to me, to me, me
Come on and sing it out, now, now
Come on and sing it out, to me, me
Come back and sing it

In my place, in my place
Were lines that I couldn’t change
And I was lost
