30 years later

Had lunch yesterday with friend S, who I hadn't seen (we worked out) for over 30 years. It is an interesting experience, on the one hand there is much to talk about, and on the other there is nothing because it is all sort of behind us.
I get the impression that he is making the transition into the last journey that I sensed in myself some years ago. My first comment to him (maybe a mistake) Gee you look like your dad! Which he did, but it rather reminds us that we are now the older generation (both in our late 50s!!!)
It was pleasant enough, we connected about a year ago on Facebook, he now lives overseas and so our contact has been slight.
I cannot make my mind up whether this encounter was profound or slight!
