Rochester Fall  by Peter Monacelli

For the Summers of '95 and '96, I lived and worked in Rochester, New York. While the daytime design work at Eastman Kodak exercised everything school said an engineer should be, the people of Rochester showed me there was much more to life than integrals and transistors. My neighbors took me in and adopted me, which is the kind of friendliness I will always think of when I think of Rochester. Peter Monacelli gave me this painting of the Rochester sky to remember Roch and my friends with. I'll admit to often day dreaming about those Summer nights, sitting on the porch flicking beer bottle caps with our thumbs, complaining about our individual work, and preparing for another night at Milestone's.
 
Rochester Fall
 
 

For Peter, Gloria, Donald & Phil, Ian, Kristine, John, Christian, Charlie, Dan, Jeff, and everyone else, thanks for the memories. While this is a thousand lines short of what I would call essential Roch, It wouldn't be complete without a picture of Peter, the porch, and his crazy nose...
