First track recorded for album sessions. Title was inspired by a Whitman poem. Wrote and completed this piece in 2011, but reworked it for this 2012 release.

This piece proved to be the mold for the rest of the record. Its simple & sparse cascading motif, and the way I improvised on it slightly with each repetition, influenced the way I handled the composition and recording of all subsequent material on The Body Begins. I wanted to make something slow, full of deep breath; serene without being somnolent.
