“Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.” ~ Tennessee Williams
Well, just one bell. Can you see it? I was working away at the computer when my BlackBerry told me it was time. No time to run outside. So from our humble little studio to you Barry, a bell rang at 2:00 p.m. - exactly.
I rooted my husband from his easel to take a photo of me ringing the little bell that had been hanging from our ceiling fan since our last trip to Germany.
For those not familiar with the story that goes with all of this International bell ringing check out Barry's site. In a nutshell, Barry, who lives in Toronto, has been fighting cancer for a year. Today, at 2:00 p.m., he completed his last chemo treatment; it is a ritual for those completing treatment to ring the bell at Princess Margaret Hospital. Barry's followers joined in and rang bells over the world, not only for Barry, but for everyone battling cancer.
Barry and his wife are wonderful people who have been fans of this blog for almost a year, so that makes them part-time residents of Crisfield. Crisfield is proud to be a part of the bell-ringing.
Get well, Barry!
And do visit Barry's blog. Avid readers will adore it.
And the time was exactly...
