The peal of the church bell splits the predawn darkness like a summons from God himself. The hermits of Big Sur rise from their beds, slip on white robes and emerge one by one from their quarters ? concrete-block cells heated with propane stoves and adorned with third-hand furniture and framed inscriptions of St. Romuald's Brief Rule For Camaldolese Monks. Sit in your cell as in paradise. Put the whole world behind you and forget it. If only it were that easy. The Catholic monks of the New Camaldoli Hermitage have lived a world apart in the inspirational majesty of Big Sur for half a century.

Re "Bid to Boost Pensions for Council Fails," May 10: It is unfortunate that Los Angeles City Council members Hal Bernson and Ruth Galanter feel that they are unable to make ends meet on their respective $6,000- and $5,000-a-month city pensions. Perhaps they could utilize their vast experience and become lobbyists to help make Los Angeles a better place to live and supplement their meager incomes at the same time. Or we could all hold monthly bake sales or carwashes to help them make ends meet.
