A Monastic Bell


In wild times and in wartime,

in times of fear and illness, I go

to Tintinnabula, where soft rains fall.

Tintinnabula is a story about moving from discomfort to peace,

from violence and uncertainty to a still, sure place.

It reminds us that our best friend in hard times

can often be ourselves.




From Latin tintinnābulum (a small monastic bell).


tintinnabulum (plural tintinnabula)

  1. A small clinking bell, particularly (historical) a small bells used to call monks to the certain tasks.
