From Ray Bradbury's "Stranger in a Strange Land", to innately understand something, to hold it as part of one's being.

"Stranger in a Strange Land" was written by Robert A. Heinlein. I've read it several times.

Thanks for catching that. I've read it too, but didn't twig to the wrong author being given credit.

Splendid word, Barbara. And how nice to be able to use it. I do hope I remember it when I need it.
