It is always such a nice surprise to see a friend after a long time; Specially a friend with a contagious laugh! I saw Alex and talked to her for about a minute but for a while I could still hear her voice and her laugh. So Shirin and I could not contain ourselves and every time she laughed, we started laughing as well. One feels just blessed to be surrounded and to know such people. It is specially heart-lifting in these days of depression and emptiness.
