100 random things that make me happy: #18

Like all southern towns, the little town I've moved to has a church on almost every corner. From the town square you can see at least 5 of them. Some of them are very old with lovely architecture and tall steeples, and the courthouse has a big clock on the dome. I live 2 blocks away from the square and can see the courthouse from my house. On any given day I can hear the bells chime the hour. On Sundays though the bells go crazy. I think 3 hours in a row the bells play a different song on the hour.  The different churches must coordinate who plays what when.  It's really quite lovely. I like hearing the lone bell chime at midnight. I like the joyful peal on Sunday mornings. Hearing the bells makes me happy.

I do like the resonance of an old bell...but I don't know whether I could stand all those bells, although sad to say for you there may come a time when they fade into the background and you'll have to stop still to hear them...

I remember and miss church bells. And I'm glad they're with you.
