The Trumpet Lady

Why I don’t believe in coincidences? I was walking around in the city with Nóra before the club meeting. No sooner had we reached Vörösmarty square than we heard somebody playing the trumpet. It was a middled-aged woman. We were standing meters away from her, and I said to Nóra: ‘I wish she played Take Five.’ When she finished, I walked up to her and dropped some coins into her box. We exchanged a smile, but not a single word was spoken. I turned around and went back to Nóra. That was the moment when the woman began to play Take Five. How is that possible? She had surely been playing for a while, and when we got there, she started playing the music I wanted to hear. On top of that, it was Thursday afternoon.

About Zsombor

I am a teacher of English and Hungarian as a foreign language. In 2011, I founded the TAKE FIVE - English Language Club. In 2016, I started working at a school where I teach children with special educational needs. I regularly write about my experiences in the classroom or about any other education-related topics. Besides teaching, I'm also interested in film-making. I got my first camcorder at the age of 17, and I've been learning about cinematography ever since. I spent 4 years studying film theory and history, and I also had a chance to spend half a year at the Budapest Film Academy, attending a writing-directing course.
