"When yor are smiling
ocurre que tu sonrisa es la sobreviviente
la estela que en ti dejó el futuro
la memoria del horror y la esperanza
la huella de tus pasos en el mar ... Leer más
el sabor de la piel y su tristeza
When you are smiling
the whole world
que también vela por su amargura
smiles with you." MB.

Es mentira que las palabras se las lleva el viento.

One message that I recieved in my cell phone was: "The world cry for you. May be the deeper message that he let us is that the oblivion is full of memory. Mario, you are inmortal! Rosencof".
Rosencof is a great uruguayan writer too, and our Director of the Culture Department at the I.M.M.
