Untold hours spent by me in Cal’s library during grad school meant the bells of Sather Tower were often a strange comfort. I could hear them from blocks away. I miss those bells. On training swims in the Hearst Pool the clock would be my guide as to just how much time was left in the workout, and its blue glow around Homecoming was always a welcome sight.
