Roses of laughter through the air

It is impossible to make news about those news about who makes the news. A few days ago, a very few days ago, chatting with that girl with the easy laugh all the time and for inexplicable reasons she could not read them in front of us, she also has no explanation, nor logic, if the news with pain has any logic. If you ask me what was the best thing that Rosa does, that unforgettable woman who now reads it from infinity, is to laugh.

Today we are that, an indefinable lot of tears, and a sad laugh in the wind to remind us that she is still alive in the soul of each friend, each colleague, each family member. It hurts me that she can no longer chat with Ocha, she will be busy with very celestial matters, perhaps teaching them to laugh in a world with so many mixed pains…
