    the Bells of St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney

    Some of you might know this, I ring church bells. And I'm only new at it so just a beginner. I attended practise last night at St. Mary's and took this vid of the ringers in mid swing. I'm not ringing, as I'm holding the camer. Really sorry for the absolute shite sound, but it was from my phone.

    enjoy

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Requires a huge amount of concentration (rather like playing the organ does). And a good head for numeric sequences. Finesse of touch and a good sense of humour.

    I lived next to a church for several years and always enjoyed the bells. Even the pracises were a delight.

    I thoroughly recommend you find your local bell town and learn, Teddles and Margaret. In fact, anyone who's not done this. So incredibly odd and yet so satisfying for so many reasons.
