The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.”— Alfred, Lord Tennyson, “Ring Out, Wild Bells,” from In Memoriam A.H.H. (1850)
The picture accompanying this post depicts the Miller Tower Carillon, a fixture of the Chautauqua Institution, where I have frequently spent my summer vacation. I took this particular photograph back in 2011.
