Friends Reunited

Today I met an old schoolfriend, Alex Perkins. We were best friends in the mid 70s, sharing those formative experiences common to many young teens at that time: Lord of the Rings, Roger Dean, Yessongs, Leeds/Chelsea, first girlfrends etc, before drifting apart around the 6th year. Thirty years passed before we bumped into each in Bangkok in 2008 and since then we've kept in touch. He's here on business but this evening I took him to see Othello followed by reminiscing over a drink. He has a much more jaded view of Chi High than I do, and probably nearer the mark. Good to catch up.
