(remember the pendulum?)

I've only known Preston for six years or so - and only intimately since we moved to The Fylde some two years ago. Naturally I assumed the Foucault's Pendulum was a new installation! It's still swinging, measuring the earth's spin as it does so, reminding one of our place in the cosmic scheme of things. Always a humbling, reverential experience, a meditation on pure materialistic wonder indeed. A reviewer once pointed out that when the Sun Ra Archestra swings, they do so like a Foucault's Pendulum. That's my groove right there - and it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!
