Les gens qui ne rient jamais ne sont pas des gens sérieux

Be who you are and say what you mean, those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind

Les petits loups

Last summer Marek and I took part in a volunteering project with mentally disabled people in Belgium. This year they were in Hungary 30 km from Budapest, and although we couldn't go for the full time, we managed to go and visit for the weekend, taking Polish vodka to the moniteurs and plenty of hugs to the rest of them...
This is Marc. He's Down's and doesn't speak, but with a little encouragement he'll sing a couple of la-la-las and mime a guitar. He is one of the most affectionate of the group, and although he doesn't speak you get such a good idea of his personality without him using words that it often makes me think about all those who speak so much but have nothing to say.
