An old friend

Erika and I went to the same high school many years ago. Afrer we started to work sometimes we together went to see plays she has always loved but since her marriage and move to another town about 16 years ago we have had little chance to meet. Recently she happened to e-mailed me and wrote that last year her father had become ill and now she comes to help her mother to take care of her father once a week. And her parents have moved into a new condominium which is very near to my house - just 5 minutes walk - 2 years ago. I asked her if she had time to see me in spare moments & she answered yes. So this afternoon I took a half day off from the office and invited her to my house. It's great to see the old friend again after so many years. I showed her my house, then we enjoyed talking for 2 hours. I thought she has not changed much but now Erika is a mother of 15-year girl and has experienced many things - her husband is a professor and she herself is a lecturer in college, they have once lived in New York for their job.
And I wondered how do I looked to her...
