The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding/Goodbye England's Rose?

I pulled out Elton John's 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' double album and was looking at the lyric's and art for 'Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding' and 'Candle in the Wind' and it struck me how eerily prophetic those songs were considering that Lady Di (England's Rose) would have Elton sing at her funeral with Bernie changing the lyrics to 'Candle in the Wind' just for the sad occasion.
And with 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' on the same album I couldn't help thinking how Charles was crowned Prince on July 1st, 1969, and that July 1st just happened to be his future wife's birthday, and let's not forget that Judy Garland overdosed and died in 1969.

I also found it kind of synchromystic that the movie 'Rocketman' about Elton John's life and music presented as a "true fantasy" opened in cinemas May 31st and that the month of June is known in England for its roses.
So, this year June, the month of the roses, would have been book-ended by the opening of Elton's movie on May 31st and Lady Di's birthday of July 1st.

July is an interesting month too, when I flick through my copy of 'The Magpie and the Wardrobe' with that month's siren/nautical themes, which seem very much in line with what Chris Knowles has been writing at his 'The Secret Sun' blog about mermaids/sirens.

I thought it was rather synchromystic after seeing this tid-bit about magpies in the same book in the month of June chapter that Naomi Watts who played Lady Di in a movie is now shooting a film about a magpie that saved a real family after a tragedy.

Seen that movie, too?-)
