I squeezed out of the narrow opening of the car door into the wind, grabbing on to the railing to step up to a big ledge just centimeters from the edge of the car. We had found a parking spot in front of the hospital in Castiglione, and when such a good parking spot is found one climbs over seats, squeezes out and smiles. Wow, a parking spot! I glanced quickly down at the choppy sea before running around the car and helping my husband out. It was his first outing in a month and a half. I had hoped for better weather for him, but at least it wasn’t raining. The strong scirocco wind was warm and had whipped the sea up overnight. After a positive visit with the physiatrist, we piled back into the car to head home. I took a deep breath of salty air and noticed a patch of sunshine had burst through the clouds. Life has been a bit rough lately, but my husband is recovering and there’s definitely sunshine.
