Earlier this week, I wrote, kind of, about being up on the roof of Chambers.

Now, courtesy of newsman and editor extraordinaire David Boraks of, one of the nation’s premier, independent hyperlocal news sites, comes a special gift:

A recording of Chambers bell ringing.

As commencement approaches, take a moment to close your eyes and think what this sound has meant to the Class of 2012 these last four years.

Ominously, over your head: late to class. Faintly, from your pillow: Waking up late for an 11:30 class. Happy: End of a class you’re glad is over. Sad: End of a class you wish would never end….

Thanks, David!
