The hot sand blew up against my face, each grain, a gritty little slap. The sun gleamed on the glassy, endless sea of desert wilderness. There are places left on this planet, untouched by anything but sun and wind, water and fire. Mortal creatures small and quick. In the aftermath of battle, when all is said and done, there is a special quiet. The dead lie in silence.
Mother Nature's soft sounds come and swallow up the horror. Softly swaying plants, soft-treaded beasts.
The land embraced me, and I became one of its creatures. Lizards and beetles, snakes and shrubs. I lived a thousand small, desert lives. Then a great lightness overtook my heart. I was free. To talk to myself, to dance naked under the stars. But I'd soon learn all too well;
It is not good for man to be alone.

In Waters Deep
We've come so far
We are a thousand waves from home
The creaking wood
The only Change we've known
In waters deep
We're guided by the silent stars
They take us closer
To a place we've never known
The ocean clock is ticking
Smashing sails against the wind

A patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a remnant opening of the fetal foramen ovale, which normally closes after a person's birth. In medical use, the term "patent" means open or unobstructed. In about 25% of people, the foramen ovale fails to close properly, leaving them with a PFO or at least with what some physicians classify as a "pro-PFO", which is a PFO that is normally closed, but can open under increased blood pressure. On echocardiography, shunting of blood may not be noted except when the patient coughs.

My Heart has a hole
the size of you
they say I was born
and I don't know why
you waited for so long
each defective Beat
more strange and more alone
Come inside, stay forever.
In these chambers you will find
