Everything I Missed, & One Thing I Didn't (today, Via Garibaldi)
I left our apartment today for the first time since last Wednesday, the fever that had flattened me since that time finally gone. How nice it was to be able to walk to my favorite fruttivendilo on Via Garibaldi in the late afternoon to buy oranges from Sicily (their stems and a few leaves still attached), to be out amid all the activity. There was a thick layer of rather menacing rain clouds above, a humid breeze, but the only truly dark cloud in the scene was (as you can see above) one of the massive man-made sort that will pass alongside the city numerous times per day, on even the sunniest of days, from now until late fall.
