Isn't it strange?

I woke this morning with  thoughts of the Sacred Marriage. No not the soon to be "royal" wedding but the sacred marriage of the king with the land as told in many stories/tales and poems. Think Arthur Pendragon for one.
Then it came into my mind about previous and present royals being part of the Freemasons and the Freemasons use of ritual magic.
Then I thought about this weekend and the turn of the wheel being Beltane, the time of the sacred marriage.
I wonder if the royal wedding is subconsciously linked with this? Of course they wouldn't get married on Saturday or Sunday(actual Beltane /May day) so is this the nearest to it and did they realise?

Coincidences, do they happen or not?
Of which:-

Several days ago someone got back in touch with me who I hadn't seen or heard from for a while. All well and good and great to hear from them.
Last night another friend rang us who we haven't seen in some time and invited us up to stay. Also very good.
This morning we had occasion to go to a nearby market town with a spinning friend. I jokingly said it wants one more friend from the past to make up my 3, everything comes in threes or seems to.

Imagine my surprise while leaving a cafe to have someone accost us and say he knew it was us by our back view:) Would that be Little and Large do you think:)
We hadn't seen this friend for quite some years and it was good to catch up. In conversation we mentioned that we now both spin, "so do I" said he and that he had an old wheel that needs some repair. Mr Mog has taken it to fix up for him when we get spare parts. This friend is a monk and apparently the spinning got him into Buddhism.

So there are no coincidences - are there?
