dustofhueNight-ride and Sunrise. I have championed the music of Jean Sibelius since the late 1990s but never visited Finland until 2012. There was a miraculous string of events that led to this flight. Helpful friends, the low Euro... but the first vital step that committed me to this journey was when I chanced upon an offer from Finnair, Sibelius's native land's airline. How could I resist? It was another sign that it was time for me to go. I made my booking in May, and there was no turning back.
The day before the flight, I received a kind text message from Finnair apologizing for the fact that the in-flight entertainment system in my chosen seat would be down. Frankly I was a bit disappointed, but no matter, it was an overnight flight that takes off at midnight anyway. So I went to sleep instead soon after supper on the plane.
I woke up at 1.45am. The lights were off, of course. I opened the window by my seat just for a curious peek. I was greeted by the most amazing sight. It was the sunrise, just touching the horizon, that touch birthing the most incredible colours from a soul-searing orange to a life-affirming blue. The sunrise hung on the horizon for a full 3 hours as we flew northwestward. It is the longest, most magical sunrise I have ever witnessed.
I could not help but think of the 1908 tone poem that Sibelius wrote. Its name: Night-ride and Sunrise. This was my long-awaited journey to Sibelius's homeland, my night-ride and sunrise, #myfinnair. http://shar.es/DqQq7#finland#jeansibelius#sibelius#night#travel#sunrise#nature#airline1w
