If you live in a populated city and want some solace, sometimes there is nowhere to go but up. The summer is a prime example of when city dwellers take to the roof. The roof becomes a guarded sanctuary shared with only a select few. A retreat away from the traffic, the people, the chaos that ensues on the street, and closer to the sky, the wind, and the sun. It is the perfect place to sunbathe, more private then the park, more discreet then the pool. Even the distant noise of the sirens, traffic, and the occasional screams of pedestrians becomes white noise that you can set a drift to on elevated bliss.
