The population of Greater Boston is 4.5 million people.  The odds of randomly meeting someone you know in Boston (who doesn't yet know you're in town) is quite remote.  So, my mathematical genius friends, what are the odds of running into someone not once, but twice in two days - once in downtown Boston and the next day, randomly, in a surrounding Boston community.....Synchronicity: "temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events." 
Regardless the meaning, it was wonderful to see 'Texas' cousins (now moved to Boston) Ann, Jeff, Ava, and Owen - 3 times!!  Ava is quite the young artist, while Owen is an up-and-coming drummer.
