"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music.

I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. I get the most joy in life out of music."

It is sung in the DinĂ© language and carries one of our Native teachings about the blessing of the spirit of water through the male and female rains.

Sicut Cervus (Palestrina)

The text of this song is from Psalm 42:1. Here is the text and then the translation: 
Sicut cervus desiderat ad fontes aquarum,ita desiderat anima mea ad te, Deus.
As the deer longs for running water, so longs my soul for you, O God.
