ray at bell foundry by Hans-Joachim Herr
He quit school, then gauged his success by which bell foundry forms and machinery he could lift or push. Once, at a bus stop, he described his job for a classy stranger. She quoted:
. . . For whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
Today, he teaches English literature six blocks from the bell foundry.
