Tu risa

14 02 2009


Quítame el pan sí quieres, quítame el aire,

pero no me quites tu risa.

Pablo Neruda

Take bread away from me, if you wish, take the air from me,

but do not take from me your laughter

The circumstances were odd. The fact that the four of us were together in the same room rarely happens any more – not for bad reasons, just good.  Our schedules are crazy – our lives are busy. But we were there and it was unforgettable and we laughed till we cried.

My Valentine’s wish is that you would share laughter today with the loves of your life. To the Dr., Best Boy and Shop Girl – ¡JA! And last but not least, we all have Billy to thank for showing us the power of a good laugh.
