Many years ago he went on a night fishing trip with a local tribe in the Amazon in South America. Paddling out in canoes from dug out tree trunks, the still dark waters came alive when they came upon some bioluminescence. He said it was an incredibly beautiful and spiritual moment.

Though I have yet to go to the Amazon, this piece is titled Sanctuary, apparently, quite fitting for some.
