Writing by hand… does it ring a bell? Does it ring and ring? (Image by Lynda Barry)
How soft the music of those village bells,
Falling at interval upon the ear
In cadence sweet; now dying all away,
Now pealing loud again, and louder still,
Clear and sonorous, as the gale comes on!
With easy force it opens all the cells
Where Memory slept.
— William Cowper- Task (bk. VI, l. 6)
