Ambushed walking down the street.
Minding my own business.
Nothing in particular on my mind.
Then I saw this beautiful car.
I had to stop and look.
This gorgeous Alfa Romeo made me cry.
My husband loved Italian cars.
We owned two Alfa Romeos when he died.
The GTV was our first car. It was fast and fun to drive.
I remember scaring my husband by driving it too fast.
Our second Alfa Romeo was a convertible previously owned by an undertaker who decided it did not fit his image.
It’s Only a Car
He would be excited to learn that Alfa Romeos are now selling once again in the US.
But he would chide me saying, “It’s only a car. What’s important is to treasure today.”
So, in the midst of sadness, I look for and cherish slivers of joy.
We had such fun!
