Hear the bells

One thing I’ve liked in both our Oxford house and our Wilmore one is that when you step outside you often catch a bit of the bells tolling from the colleges down the street.  Asbury’s bell usually plays old hymns that even I know, and they’re often ones written by Charles Wesley (hey, it’s a Wesleyan school).  Just now, I was sitting on the fifth floor of Cornell’s library, which is separated by a walkway from Cornell’s clock-tower (a local landmark visible from miles around).  It started to play “Pretty Woman” before it switched over to the school song.  Different tunes for different folks . . .
