So today I really heard the bell on our campus ring. I've heard the sound before, but it was the first time I took it into account. We have a large bell tower that dings on the hour. Bell towers are very much a part of literature and many stories. The only particular one that comes to mind is "For whom the bell tolls" and the part in Disney's Robin Hood where the character yells "1 o'clock and all is well". Anyway, it's just not something we really take note of or even consider- or maybe that is just me. But today I heard it, and appreciated that it could become a part of a rich association to this campus if I take time to hear it on other days.
