Musings from the Bunker 4/18/20

Greetings and Happy Saturday!

Yes, the above comes from Texas…! Thanks, Ellen Muskin, from Austin!



  • I love this rendition of “God Only Knows,” by the Beach Boys, arranged, sung, and choreographed by (mostly) British artists. Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder, Sam Smith, and others appear in this great and well-staged production. This was produced by the “Beeb” (the BBC): God Only Knows - BBC Music - YouTube



I was thinking about this poem the other day. I’ve always liked it. It’s a beautiful, mysterious, and thought provoking meditation, so I thought I’d share it:


By Percy Bisshe Shelley

I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand, Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamp'd on these lifeless things, The hand that mock'd them and the heart that fed. And on the pedestal these words appear: "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!" Nothing beside remains: round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare, The lone and level sands stretch far away.



With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this Calling

We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time.

-- T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Have a great weekend,
