On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me
– The Drifters (‘Up On The Roof‘)
Summer’s almost here and with it comes roof life.
There really is nothing quite like watching the vibrant pulse of a city at night from a rooftop. And try sitting on a roof watching people passing by down below on a sultry evening and tell me it isn’t one of the greatest things in the land.
Crawling out on to a roof for a little peace and quiet, for a little ‘me-time’, is a time-honored tradition, and roof sitting has been something people have been doing since some caveman had the idea to watch the sun go down from on top of a tall stone 8 gillion years ago.
But, the thing is, people are aren’t the only ones that are way way into it.
In case you haven’t noticed by now, there are a whole lot of dogs who love roof life as well.
I absolutely love seeing dogs perched up high above me on some rooftop, watching me going on by. I dig knowing that down here in the street, we are being scrutinized and observed by the greatest judges on Earth. So, I have decided to pay tribute to the universal joy that is the happy dog up on the roof.
Just looking at pics of these buggers makes me smile.
Hope it does the same for you…
