Love Note #8: I have left you but I'll always love you.
I have left you but I'll always love you.
I will miss...
...the peace of Highland Park under a blanket of fresh snow
...bumping into friends at the Market
...apple shopping at the Market on a crisp fall day, coffee in hand
...the smiles and laughter of kids busting through the doors of School 23
...the kindness of my neighbors on my beloved Arlington Street
...my beautiful--and affordable--masterpiece of an old house
...the cooling breezes off the Lake on a hot summer day
...the breathtaking beech trees
...greeting folks on their porches on a sultry summer night
...saying I share a hometown with Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony
...the civic pride and spirit that makes Rochester so special
Thank you for fourteen wonderful years. I hope I gave as much as I received.
