     This bridge is to support understanding of the handmade music presented on "Turtles All The Way Down." At the turn of the century, a famous metaphysician was lecturing in England about the universe, the solar system and how man once believed the sun revolved around the Earth. He went on to say that now we knew through modern science that actually the Earth revolves around the sun, and so on. As he was leaving the lecture hall, an elderly woman approached him and disputed his claim of the Earth floating in space around the sun. She told him that really the Earth was being carried on the back of a giant turtle. With his logic he replied, "Yes, but what is supporting that turtle?" She wagged her finger at him and said, "Didn't you know? It's turtles all the way down." And thus the title of this album. I understand celestial motion, but I also believe the book is still open and there is more in Heaven and Earth than is contained in our philosophy, turtleheads.
