I love this song (listen to the words). The video was just how Chris and I interacted, except for the kiss...

"Charismatic Connection is a beautifully written [story] in which the main characters are soul mates who meet again and recognize each other at a deep spiritual level long before their lives become intertwined through thoroughbred racing. They are both protagonists with deep sorrow in their immediate lives, seeking solace but constantly torn from the immediate connection and pull they felt towards each other from time immemorial. The book is truly for romantics and horse lovers, as the plot is revealed through the running of many well-known horse races and events that keep bringing the two main characters into contact with each other, in ever-deepening ways. The book is one that will keep you reading to the end,with amazing spiritual overtones in a way that will draw you in."-Bonnie Neely, Real Travel Adventures Magazine Editor

"This movie totally captured the love of two people who were destined for each other... This book totally captured the love of two people who were destined for each other. As just as important, it is their love of horses that binds them in a story that shows the human spirit overcoming all major difficulties and disappointments. You can really feel the soul searching that each of them went through. And, in addition, this is a true story -- and it is incredibly uplifting! And for the horse lovers, it takes you deep into the workings of the all the major race tracks -- Del Mar, Santa Anita, Keeneland, Aqueduct, Saratoga -- and some that are no longer around -- like Garden State Racetrack.. It has a feel of "Secretariat" and "Seabiscuit", and you will end up pulling for them both!"-Beth Hegedus
"In this riveting true story Serena Jade puts together a road map of how to connect the dots to a true soul mate experience. Throughout this extremely well written non-fictional story the reader is forced to answer the question are these experiences coincidence or fate? The answer was clearly fate when Serena Jade went to Greece and all of the pieces of the puzzle came together. This was crystallized when she was drawn to turning on the TV to watch Chris Antley win the 1999 Kentucky Derby on the horse Charismatic. If you want to understand the true soul mate experience, Charismatic Connection is a must read."-Craig Heller
