    Thank you Reena and Richie – and thank you for taking my question. You have given me much food for thought. Thank goodness there is a scientific explanation for this ‘communication’ between our limbic systems, and I’m not really cursed – I am going to enjoy reading deeper into the subject.

    Kind Regards
