The bell tower

In the middle of campus, with a view straight out to the Golden Gate Bridge, is a big white tower, housing our campus carillon. It sounds out every hour the time, one bell rung for one o'clock, two for two o'clock, etc. I was teaching Palmer about it on Saturday, and he was having so much fun counting the rings. And then everyday at 8am, noon, and 6pm, a ten minute of so song or mini-concert is played. I teach at 8am, and so everyday as I am walking to my classroom, I get to hear the bells ringing to a dulcet melody as I walk past our huge classical library, and I am awed by the beauty of my surroundings.
