Sadly, I missed yesterday’s Those Were The Days Reunion in Göteborg. That’s not to say my thoughts weren’t with my old buddies. Especially after each of the near real-time updates I was sent during their evening.
Though we initially met and became friends way back in the 1970s, our bond has withstood the test of time and I’ve only recently begun appreciating that there is tangible comfort in growing older with friends from one’s youth.
Since we’re all inevitably heading towards the final chapters of our storied lives, being in the company of old buddies just might make the ride into Vallhall a little less ominous.
