cyder_drinker bellringing (72* d) RE: bellringing 14 Nov 01


I have been a bellringer since 1995 (sounds like an AA meeting!)
Musicians would relate to this: You know that time in a sesion, when suddenly something clicks with everyone at the same moment and the music takes on a life of its own, and becomes something much larger than the sum of people playing? The intense feeling of euphoria and kind of "natural high" that you get when this happens?
Well when you get it right whilst ringing bells as part of a team - timing spot on, the rhythm is flowing - that's the same feeling.
Oh, and it's also really nice when you stop after a full peal (which can take up to 4 hours on the bigger rings!)

Where do you ring, Bridwidder? My "home tower" is St Mary Redcliffe, Bristol.
